Spot­light on keep­ing fit

The Courier & Advertiser (Angus and The Mearns Edition) - - FROM THE ARCHIVE - Traces through time with Terry Mac­cal­lum

The start of a new year is of­ten when we make a de­ci­sion to get fit and take more ex­er­cise. Our se­lec­tion of archive pho­tographs to­day shows the var­i­ous ways that folk achieved that aim.

Clock­wise, from top left, the first pho­to­graph shows the mem­bers of the Birkhill Am­a­teur Box­ing Club, which was based at Lochee United Foot­ball Club Gym at Thom­son Park in Dundee.

Pic­tured with the boys are Alec Mcinnes, left, sec­re­tary Joe Duffy, cen­tre, and John Scott, right.

The next pic­ture shows a scene from the open­ing night of the Aris­to­crat Leisure Cen­tre, North Lind­say Street, Dundee, in April 1982.

A group of pupils are pic­tured dur­ing a tram­polin­ing ses­sion at Law­side Academy, Dundee, in May 1966.

The last pic­ture shows four pupils from Forthill Pri­mary School, Dundee, as they at­tempt to climb the ropes in the gym hall.

Do any of these pho­tographs bring back mem­o­ries for you? If so, we’d love to hear them. Please email [email protected]­

There’s al­ways one – pic­tured cling­ing to the ropes in the gym hall are pupils from Forthill Pri­mary in a pho­to­graph from 1964.
