May Races 1921: the Emmanuel Pagans’ Club Barge, at Morley Gardens. The Pagans’ principal activity was playing cricket, but they also organised a barge every year at the May Races. Their report in the 1920/21 College Magazine informed readers that ‘During the May Races the Club Barge performed its usual functions as a grand stand and a café, not to speak of rescuing the shipwrecked and towing the idle’
