St Catharine's College Commemorative Rudder.
An original Oxford University presentation trophy rudder 'St Catharine's Boat Club, Summer Eights 1949' with gold calligraphy and college insignia. The rudder comes with the corresponding team photograph, size 21 ½ inches high by 25 ½ inches wide. The picture has three team photos of the Summer Eights, the first, second and third teams. This is the former property of C. Graham Kaye who was the cox in the second team 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.

The rudder is painted on both sides and the calligraphy on the front reads:
St Catharine's - Boat - Club.
