This collection is open for use unless otherwise noted.

Publication and Use Rights

Some material may be copyrighted or restricted. It is the researcher's obligation to determine and satisfy copyright or other case restrictions when publishing or otherwise distributing materials found in the collections.

Processing Note

Dates refer to when the original photograph was taken. Many of the photographic prints and negatives in this collection are copies that were made much later than when the original photograph was taken, and the dates of these reproductions were noted when known.
Some of the photographs (mostly 8 x 10 in.) have South End paper scroll labels with descriptive information affixed to the front of them. The presence of these labels likely indicates that the photographs were at one time framed and hanging in the South End boathouse.
Information about numeric stamps on the back of the photographs has been included in the physical description notes, because in the early 20th century the stamp often signified the customer number. This might help to identify which photographs came from particular people.
Photographs are numbered 1-280A, 280B-483. Each item number represents one photographic image or textual item. There are often different versions of a photograph (e.g. a print and a negative) but they are described as one item because they both depict the same image. The photographs were arranged in chronological order within each series. The photographs have been housed by material type and size, according to appropriate storage needs.

Rowing Nomenclature and Abbreviations

  • Coxed four man sweep = sweep boat (each man only has one oar) with four men rowing and a coxswain
  • Coxless four man sweep = sweep boat (each man only has one oar) with four men rowing, with no coxswain
  • Single scull = one man rowing in a boat with two oars
  • Rowers number = Typically, each rower is identified by a sequential number in order from bow to stern. Occasionally, the numbering is reversed.
  • PAAO= Pacific Association of Amateur Oarsmen
  • SERC=South End Rowing Club

Acquisition Information

SAFR-01988
On December 3, 2007, the following materials were formally accessioned as SAFR-01988: photographic prints, negatives, and documents (including news clippings, announcements, etc.). They were donated by Patrick "Pat" Cunneen, a historian of the South End Rowing Club.
Pat Cunneen took some of the photographs; however, the bulk were taken by a variety of other photographers, many unknown. Cunneen acquired most of the photographs from South End Rowing Club members but many do not have the photographer or source identified. Some members that likely gave him photographs are Carl H. Bierbaum, George Farnsworth, Al Horstmeyer, Al Rossi and Mrs. A. Rossi, Art Weinrib, and the son of Mike Wheatley.

Historical or Biographical Note

The South End Rowing Club is one of the oldest rowing clubs on the Pacific Coast still in existence. It was established in San Francisco in 1873, and its boathouse has been in various locations in Aquatic Park since late 1908. 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. They also participate in many social activities, including their annual St. Patrick's Day celebration.
The South End Boat Club was founded on May 5, 1873, in San Francisco. The first officers were: Peter McAvoy (president); James Bolan (vice-president); H. Comfort (secretary) and James Roe (treasurer). Some of the first members were Dave Morris, Charles West, Richard Landers, Charles Brown, and [Tom] McNamara (Pickelhaupt, Club Rowing, 14).
The first boathouse of the South End Boat Club was located at the foot of Third Street and Berry Street, in an area of the city called Steamboat Point. This location likely got its name because in the late 1850s, decommissioned and broken-down steamboats that had been shipped from the East Coast in pieces were reassembled near the foot of Third Street (1). Steamboat Point was near the Long Bridge, which ran along the line of Fourth Street from Channel Street on the north to the Potrero [Potrero Point] and on to Hunters Point (2). Construction of the bridge started on February 9, 1865. There were many boathouses on or near the bridge, and regattas were held there regularly.
On April 7, 1874, the South End Boat Club and Friendship Rowing Club decided to combine forces and adopted the name of the Neptune Boat Club, and took over the South End's boathouse (16-17). In November 1878, the Neptune Boat Club changed its name to the Golden Gate Rowing Club. This was to avoid confusion with the Neptune Swimming and Boating Club in North Beach (which was established July 14, 1877) (20).
In July 1881, the South End Boat Club was reestablished. The Golden Gate Rowing Club moved out of the building at the foot of Third Street and the new members of the South End Boat Club moved in (25). On February 26, 1882, the South End Boat Club participated in their first race after this re-establishment; a race against the Golden Gate Rowing Club (28). In September of 1885, construction started on a new boathouse for the South End Boat Club (still near the location at the end of Third Street). The architect was Adolph C. Lutgens and the contractors were E & F. J. Owens. (In 1895 Lutgens was hired to construct the Dolphin Club's new building.) The new South End boathouse was finished on November 1, 1885. The first floor was used for boat storage and dances, and the second floor was used as an assembly room, dressing room, and bath (38).
In the early 1890s the club's official colors became red and white (46). Towards the end of 1891, the South End Boat Club changed its name to the South End Rowing Club (SERC). By 1892, there were 100 members of the South End Rowing Club and they built an indoor gymnasium in the boathouse (47). In 1897, the South End board approved the construction of a handball court, which was completed in October 1899 (52).
From mid-1900 to 1901, there was discussion between the city of San Francisco and the South End Rowing Club about moving the club's boathouse. The Southern Pacific Railroad wanted to buy the block where the boathouse was located, in order to put in tracks and a warehouse. In December 1901, it was decided that the South End Rowing Club had to move, but they were able to get an 18 month stay in effect on January 1, 1902. "A letter from the San Francisco Board of Public Works in March 1902, ordered the boathouse and handball court [to be] removed by July 1, 1903." The court was removed in May 1903 and in June, and construction started on a boathouse in a new location. The new boathouse was located at the foot of 16th Street near the Arctic Oil Wharf and was designed by Frank Van Trees. In early summer of 1904, the South End Rowing Club moved into its new boathouse (67-69).
After only being in their new location for about three years, in August 1907, the Harbor Commission ordered the South End Rowing Club to move because they wanted to extend the seawall through Central Basin, Islais Creek and India Basin. In late 1908, the South End Rowing Club boathouse was moved on a barge owned by Henry Petersen. The building was towed to the foot of Van Ness Avenue, on the west side of Black Point Cove (this Cove became known as Aquatic Park in the late 1920s-1930s) (70-72). In 1919, the club built a handball court at their location in Black Point Cove. It was so popular that a second one was built a few years later, likely in 1922 (74).
In 1913, The Panama Pacific International Exposition Company built an elevated railroad trestle across the cove and in 1914 built a tunnel through Black Point to reach the exposition grounds in the area known today as the Marina. This elevated trestle went across the ends of the rowing club's docks and was not a welcome addition. In the early 1920s, the railroad trestle was moved further inland, even closer to the Ariel Rowing Club, Dolphin Rowing Club, and South End Rowing Club. The trestle was still elevated over their docks but was much closer to the boathouses.
In July or August 1927, the SERC boathouse was moved from the foot of Van Ness Avenue to the foot of Larkin Street. On December 7, 1937, the club, along with the Dolphin Rowing Club and Ariel Rowing Club, was moved to its current location at the corner of Hyde Street and Jefferson Street (87, 89).
Beginning in the 1930s-1940s, swimming became more popular at the SERC club. Members started participating in annual events such as the Golden Gate Swim, the New Year's Morning Swim, and the Alcatraz Swim. There have also been many other events that have taken place in Aquatic Park and swimming still continues to be a popular activity at the South End Rowing Club.
In 1975, Joan Brown, Lee Bender, Trudy DiLorenzo, Diane Major, Cecile Marie, and Marilyn Rodman sued the South End and the Dolphin clubs for discrimination, because they wanted to be allowed to become members. In 1977 they won the lawsuit, and women were finally allowed to become members of both clubs. After their victory, all six women went on to become life-long members of the South End Rowing Club or the Dolphin Club (De Dijn 11).

Pickelhaupt, Bill. 2005. San Francisco's Aquatic Park. San Francisco: Arcadia Publishing.
Note: Pickelhaupt gives conflicting information about the Friendship Rowing Club. On page 10 of "Club Rowing on San Francisco Bay," he says that "The Friendship Rowing Club appears to have been formed by the consolidation of the California Boat Club and the Oakleaf Rowing Club." But later in the book, on page 16, he says that "The South End and Friendship clubs decided to combine forces, emerging as the Neptune Boat Club in April 1874" and on page 17 he says "The Neptune Boat Club, successor to the South End Boat Club and Friendship Rowing Club, was founded April 7, 1874." In his 2005 publication "San Francisco's Aquatic Park," Pickelhaupt also makes reference to the fact that the Friendship and South End clubs merged as Neptune.
Pickelhaupt also says that the South End Rowing Club was reestablished in July 1881. This conflicts with other information in the Inkersley article that says the club was reorganized in August 1880. The 1880 date seems more plausible because this collection contains several photographs of the front of the boathouse that has a sign that says "Est. 1880."

Collection Scope and Content

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. The collection has been processed to the item level.
Contains photographs of South End Rowing Club (SERC) members participating in recreational and competitive athletic events (rowing, swimming, running) in the San Francisco Bay Area. Rowing and swimming locations include Aquatic Park, the Oakland-Alameda Estuary, and the San Francisco Bay. There are many photographs of social events at their boathouse in Aquatic Park and on various beaches in the San Francisco Bay Area.

Collection Arrangement

The collection has been arranged into six series:

  • Series 1: Rowing
  • Series 2: Swimming
  • Series 3: Running and Triathlons
  • Series 4: Members
  • Series 5: Boathouse and surrounding neighborhood
  • Series 6: Other photographs, textual material and clippings

Container List

  • Box 1: Negatives
  • Box 2: Prints (5 x 7 in. or smaller)
  • Box 3: Prints (5 x 7 in. or smaller)
  • Box 4: Prints (larger than 5 x 7 in. to 8 x 10 in.)
  • Box 5: Prints (larger than 5 x 7 in. to 8 x 10 in.)
  • Box 6: Prints (larger than 8 x 10 in.)
While there are photographs of members throughout the collection, rowing, swimming and running/triathlons have been put into separate series because these were major categories of activity at the South End Rowing Club. Handball was also an activity that the members participated in, but there are no photographs of this activity in this collection and there is consequently no series for this topic.
The photographs in Series 4 (Members) generally show the members socializing, as opposed to training or competing in athletic events. However since the club members liked rowing, some of the social events involve getting to places in boats or swimming in the water. Since many of the photographs in the Members series did not have much description on the back of the prints, it is entirely possible that some of this socializing happened before or after athletic events (or training). Since it is hard to tell when this is the case, these photographs have not been placed into the first three series and have instead been left in the 4th series which is more inclusive. The Members series shows SERC members socializing with each other and does not include photographs of members in their personal lives outside of the club.
The photographs in Series 5 (Boathouse and surrounding neighborhood) are generally comprised of photographs of the boathouse and neighborhood alone, without any members nearby (there are a few exceptions). There are many photographs in series 1-4 that were taken at or near the boathouse, so portions of the boathouse can be seen in these photos. This has been noted when known (e.g. Group portrait of four men in front of the SERC boathouse). The photos in series 5 are generally shots taken from further back, showing the entire view of the boathouse at some of its various locations in San Francisco throughout the years.

Series 1.  Rowing, 1894-1992 (bulk 1910-1935)

Extent: 89 items

Scope and Content Note

Contains photographs of members training and rowing in competitive events and posed for photographs after events that took place in the San Francisco Bay Area. Some of the pictures show the members holding trophies and plaques. Most photographs were taken in the San Francisco Bay (including Aquatic Park and the Oakland-Alameda Estuary) and there are some taken in Clear Lake, Lake Merced, and other unidentified bodies of water. There are several photographs of members at the club's training facility at Pier 54. SERC used this facility from the 1920s-early 1950s, but it is unknown the exact length of time that they used these training quarters. Most of the photographs are of men in sculls, sweep boats, training barges, and standing on docks. Many of the men are also wearing clothing or bathing suits with South End Rowing Club insignias on them, and it can be seen how the bathing suits changed throughout the years. Many of the individuals in the photographs are identified.
There is a photograph of the christening of a barge in this series. Series 4 (Members) also contains a photograph of a group of people on a dock that might also depict a boat christening ceremony; it is located in Series 4 because we could not confirm that it was related to a boat christening ceremony, although it seems likely that it is.
Black-and-white and color photographic prints and negatives. Some of the photographic prints are stuck to glass, have had something spilled on them, are torn, or are very fragile.

Scope and Content Note

Left to right: William La Chappelle, Al Fritz, Henry Bode, Frank Duplissea, George McGrill (coxswain -- seated). Nameboard of the SOUTH END (barge, built 1891) and two crossed oars in the background. SERC paper label says: "W.A. La Chapelle, Judge Fritz, Henery Bode, Frank Duplissa, Geo. McGreal."
"Al Fritz was a nephew of saloon keeper and political boss Alfred J. Fritz, who ruled San Francisco during much of the late 1870s (he threatened to turn his Gatling guns on the Workingmen's Party at one point). With the elder Frtiz' death under very mysterious circumstances, the way was cleared for "Blind Boss" Buckley to ascend to the top of the political heap. The younger Fritz became a judge, where he served on the bench for over 50 years. Frank Duplissea was a son of the longtime stroke of the South End's extremely successful professional four man crew, George Duplissea. Frank was a great oarsman and became wealthy in later years. George suffered the loss of Frank and another son Walter when they were fairly young." (Pickelhaupt, Bill. 2005. San Francisco's Aquatic Park. San Francisco: Arcadia Publishing. p. 37)

The crowd is gathered around a barge and some of the people are wearing ribbons on the lapels of their jackets. It seems very likely that this is the christening celebration of a barge. Possibly the christening of the SOUTH END on February 14, 1915? This photograph was definitely taken between 1909 and 1921, because the boathouse is at the foot of Van Ness and the elevated railroad trestle is not very close to the boathouse (it was moved very close circa 1921).

There is a boat hanging in the middle of the ceiling and there are crepe paper decorations hanging from the boat to the edges of of the ceiling. The dance attendees are standing and seated below these decorations. While the annotation on the front of the print gives the date of the dance as December 9, 1910, there is a note on the back of one of the prints that says, "Date is in error. I have the original [photograph] from J. Salgilla Studios, 1348 Valencia Street, SF, with a date on the photo of April 9, 1911." (It is unclear if perhaps both of these dates are incorrect? In an article in the San Francisco Call, Volume 111, Number 62, page 11, 31 January 1912, it says there was going to be a dance in Puckett's Hall on April 9, 1912.)

A copy of this article is included with the print.

Scope and Content Note

Approximately 33 men are in view, some wearing bathing suits and most are wearing dress suits. The boathouse is either at the foot of 16th Street or Van Ness Avenue. The boathouse does not appear to have any buildings next to it, which makes it hard to tell which location it is in. It seems like it was taken before the 1920s, based on the outfits the people are wearing. There is a possibility that this photograph was taken in July or August of 1927, when the boathouse was moved to the foot of Larkin Street. The building is still on pilings so it looks like it has just been moved or is just about to move. The back of the print says: "At the foot of 16th Street, 1906? Or at the new location at 'Black Point' [at the foot of Van Ness]." In this photograph, there are no portholes on the front of the building (some of the photographs from the 1930s show portholes on the front of the building; it is unknown when these portholes were added).

This photograph was taken from the water, likely from a vessel. It appears to show the South End Rowing Club's dock only partially finished. The cook shack can be seen on the right. The label on the front of the print dates the photograph as "late 1920s." There is an annotation on the back of the print that says the photograph was taken in 1927, which seems more accurate due to the partial construction of the dock. The boathouse moved to the foot of Larkin Street in July or August 1927, which is why the date of this photograph is likely August-December 1927.

The print is annotated as dating 1929, but this is incorrect because the Municipal Pier can be seen in the background, and it was constructed between 1931 and 1934. Label on the front of the 6.38 x 9 in. print says: "Notice we had water under the cook shack, a front yard, picturesque twin cupolas, but no saunas!"
