The marker guide for the 2000 metre rowing course commemorates Milton C. Kent (1888-1965) for his outstanding sporting achievements and service for over 50 years to the Ashfield municipality.

Milton Kent was a pioneer of industrial and aerial photography, a prize-winning airman and a champion sculler. Initially, Kent worked as a sports photographer but by the 1920s he had embraced aerial photography using a specially crafted oblique camera. Over the next 50 years, Kent used his camera to capture the opening of new blocks of land across Sydney, the construction of the harbour bridge and many other events up until his death in 1965.
