Magazine Images
Bill Miller

Rowing images were used on magazine covers. Most of the time these were colorful illustrations capturing the excitement or beauty of rowing. Colliers, Saturday Evening Post and the New Yorker used rowing as the cover subject more than once. Also, inside the magazines there were images, and many times multiple images, showing a rowing event such as Henley Royal Regatta. In some magazines such as Outing, there were little illustrated vignettes that introduced a rowing article.
