1966 Technique


The caption to this picture reads, "A Senior House social tradition". By 1966, Steer Roast was just that. The 1966 Technique article contains the following description: "Spring was highlighted by Senior House's greatest social tradition, the charcoal broiling of a hind quarter of steer in Bosworth Court (the spit sagged under the weight of an additional shoulder cut necessitated by the high attendance). It it likely that in the future the House will have to grow its own larger steer in Bosworth Court."

Is this spit still the one being used today?
