A photograph of an elegantly-dressed spectator at the famous regatta at Henley-on-Thames in Oxfordshire, taken by Edward Malindine for the Daily Herald newspaper on 5 July, 1933. The regatta was first held in 1839. Since 1851, when Prince Albert became the Regatta's first royal patron, it has been known as Henley Royal Regatta. As well as a venue for competitive rowing, Henley is one of the highlights of the social calendar. This photograph has been selected from the Daily Herald Archive, a collection of over three million photographs. The archive holds work of international, national and local importance by both staff and agency photographers.
