Description
The Patrick Cunneen collection of South End Rowing Club photographs, 1880-2003, (P07-004, SAFR 23145) is comprised mainly of club members rowing, swimming, running, and socializing at their boathouse in San Francisco and in other locations in the San Francisco Bay Area.

It has been in its current location at Hyde and Jefferson Streets since 1937. The club members participate in both professional and amateur rowing, as well as swimming, running, and handball competitions.
