There are a lot of well-known “names” throughout strength history. Just spend a few minutes on this site and you’ll get a good idea of most of them. But there are also hundreds, if not thousands of strongmen out there whose names and feats have been lost to the sands of time.
Take this gentleman, for example: All we know is that he was active in the Holyoke, Massachusetts area at the turn of the century… and he had good taste in equipment. That’s a fine looking dumbbell by his feet. Only time will tell if we ever learn anything more about him.
