A photograph entitled 'The Lent Races at Cambridge: The Second Division (A Bump Just Made)', taken by Edgar Tarry Adams in March 1902.

The photograph shows rowing teams from the colleges of Cambridge University competing in the annual Lent Races. These inter-collegiate races are held at Cambridge over the course of a few days during the Lent Term of each University year. A winner is established by bumping opponents to knock them out. This photograph was taken just after such a bump occurred.
