AR­CHIVE PHOTO OF THE WEEK

Buckinghamshire Advertiser - - OPINION -

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.
