I've been trying to find out whether these are genuine rowers or just models. They look like rowers to me - consider the grungy socks and shoes - but what do I know? Apart from an advertising archive, I can't find any other copies of this advert.
Would coffee still be considered good for you after a hard row? I know I used to love a Coke, a Mars bar and a packet of crisps after going swimming, but I guess I'm not a good role model.
