ARCHIVE PHOTO OF THE WEEK
IF you’ve made a new year’s resolution to get fit, you might want to take a leaf out of these guys’ book. Here’s another great picture from our MirrorPix archive. This one was taken in 1950. The caption reads: “More and more married men are taking up weightlifting. Out of the nine weight lifters who attended Bisham Abbey National Recreation Centre at Marlow, Buckinghamshire for a weight lifting instructors course, eight were married. Here is dad doing a half snatch under the instruction of Mr R J Carter of St Paul Clay, Sidcup, staff instructor to the British Amateur Weight Lifting Association.” We’re not sure whose dad it is though.
