Mercury (Hobart) - Magazine - - UPFRONT - DAMIAN BESTER

Our re­cent im­age of Ship­wrights Point on the Huon River re­minded reader David Budd of his pho­tos of the Long fam­ily hav­ing a pic­nic at the an­nual re­gatta held at that lo­ca­tion. They were there in 1931 to watch broth­ers Tas and Ge­orge Long row for Lind­is­farne in the Ship­wrights Point Re­gatta se­nior fours, fin­ish­ing sec­ond be­hind the Der­went club crew. The Longs lived at Lind­is­farne and op­er­ated a plumb­ing busi­ness at 103 Har­ring­ton St, Ho­bart, for many years. Thanks for shar­ing this photo David, and check out those fine-look­ing mo­tor cars in the back­ground!
