This scene depicts an eights race during the late 1920s, probably a Grand Challenge Cup final. The perspective shows a degree of artistic license – the Leander Club and the boating tents have been left out completely, bringing the bridge much closer to the finish line (and the press box-the middle of the three smaller boxes in the centre of the picture- closer to the bridge). A companion pair to this oil, commissioned by Harold Rickett and looking towards the start of the race, is owned by Henley Royal Regatta.
