Due to other commitments, I will not be immediately producing a HTBS report on Saturday at Henley. As always, the results are constantly updated on the Henley Royal Regatta website and racing can be viewed live and on demand on YouTube. I am, however, sending out postcards. In the days when labour was cheap, an hourly postal delivery service in urban areas was common and a card could be used as a text/SMS. A man delayed at work in a city could send a note home to the suburbs announcing that he would be late. Postcards were also bought as souvenirs to keep, never intended for posting.
Below are a few other images of Regattas past, not postcards but still great images of an event that is always changing in order to appear the same.
Updated on 4 July to reflect comments below by Malcolm and Tim.
