Three British Rowing Champions Of 1923

Here is a nice collection (although, not in a perfect condition) of three British Rowing Champions of 1923: on top, R.W. Phelps of Putney (No. 46), the winner of the Doggett’s Coat and Badge Race; on the left, J. Beresford Jun of Thames RC (No. 32), winner of the Wingfield Sculls; and M.K. Morris of the London RC (No. 33), winner of the Diamond Challenge Cup at Henley.

As you can see these are cigarette cards from the tobacco company Callahers which was founded by Tom Callaher in Derry, Ireland, in 1857. Seventy-five cards of “British Champions of 1923” came out in 1924.
