Edward Hanlan (1855-1908)

Edward Hanlan was a Canadian oarsman who defended his world championship six times before losing to William Beach of Australia in 1884. Hanlan's single shell, "The Cigarette," was equipped with a seat on rollers to increase speed. In the bottom left corner of the carte de visite there is a childhood photo of him rowing in the tub.
