Sepia Saturday, after a long time away

It's Sepia Saturday number 325, and I would like to join those intrepid bloggers listed there in interpreting this week's theme.  I perused American Memory at the Library of Congress to find the image below:


Potomac Boat Club.
CREATED/PUBLISHED
1919 Sept. 21.
SUMMARY
Nine young women in racing shell on river.
NOTES
Date from back of photograph; however, photograph may have been taken later because bridge in background (Key Bridge) was under construction from 1917 to 1923.
National Photo Company Collection (Library of Congress).
Published in: American women : a Library of Congress guide for the study of women's history and culture in the United States / edited by Sheridan Harvey ... [et al.]. Washington : Library of Congress, 2001, p. xii.

An apt post. I remember when we were in Boston watching rowers in racing shells paddling up and down the Charles River slipping under bridges as they went. A pretty sight on a lovely river.

Bingo! Rowers and a bridge, and ladies rowers at that.
