St Catharine's College Commemorative Rudder.
An original Oxford University presentation trophy rudder 'St Catharine's Boat Club, Torpids 1950' with gold calligraphy and college insignia. The rudder comes with the corresponding team photograph by Gillman & Soame, Oxford, size 10 ½ inches high by 12 ½ inches wide. This is the former property of C. Graham Kaye who was the cox and is part of a collection of rowing items from St Catharine's College, Oxford in the 1940's / 50's and all relate to a Kaye. We also have a second rudder of Kaye's that would make a great companion to this one as well as some other team photos.
