Collection Overview
Table of contents What's This?
The Michael Dobrin photograph collection, 1938-1998, bulk 1989 (SAFR 23354, P02-007) is comprised mainly of photographic prints and negatives of San Francisco Bird Boats, 1938-1989. The collection has been processed to the item level and is open for use.
History of Bird Boats: The Bird Class was a San Francisco Bay type One Design Class boat, developed in the early 1920s to handle local wind and water conditions. One Design Class boats are all the same model or design. This allows the boats to be on an even playing field and there is no handicap in the race; the first boat to cross the finish line wins. This also puts more focus on the skills of the competitors in the races since all the boats are the same.
