Southport Tub Race circa 1890's
"Original print (on heavy cardboard) of a Southport Tub Race, {date of this photo unknown, (estimated 1890's)}". "Tub Racing" was mentioned as a sport in the 1890's (and documented in photos also into the 1920's). (C. M. Bulkley, Mill River, Southport, Reminiscences of the Past pages 25-26). People seen gathered at the BC&MMR, and also on what is now called Perry Green.
