In a previous Wayback Wednesday we highlighted rowing artwork as the chosen medium at the turn of the century to showcase rowing. This week's Wayback Wednesday we are back for part two of Wayback Rowing Artwork. This week's selection includes artwork from the mid 1800's as well at political commentary told through rowing.

We would love to do another reader submitted Wayback Wednesday in the near future. If you have any old school rowing images we should check out and are allowed to share, please send them to us.

During these unprecendented times, row2k is working hard to keep rowing coming to you; please help us keeping it coming by supporting our work!
