During one of the annual Rowing Regattas
held by the BROCKVILLE ROWING CLUB

Near the turn of the century, some of the most popular sporting and social events of the summer season in Brockville were the regatta races held by the BROCKVILLE ROWING CLUB. Rowing clubs from other communities were invited to send teams to complete with the local rowers. Large crowds turned out for the day's events and can be seen here lining the shore and viewing from their personal rowing skiffs.
 
Erected 2006 by City of Brockville, Heritage Brockville, and Brockville Community Foundation.
