A Whole Lotta Oars

photos by Elle Sandes

I walked into Nick Birch's shop in Stratford-Upon-Avon and one of the first things I saw was this large cart, loaded with rowboat oars.
The large fleet of boats out front all need oars for people to effectively have fun renting them.

This one cart carries something like ninety to one hundred of the traditional rowing oars.
Nick told me that for the longest time they'd carried the oars out a few at a time, until one staff member came up with this cart idea. 
I'm sure he's well-liked by everyone who works there.
