1975 article about Barge Matches

There’s a lovely article here from Look and Learn, history picture library, about reviving “Victorian barge races” on the Thames and Medway.   It was published on 7th June 1975.  

The article starts with the story of Captain Alfred Horlock and Phoenician, and the four generations of his family winning barge matches.
