Bavarian Stone Lifting Contest

Munich, Germany, March, 27th, 1954: Adolf Grenzebach, given moral support by members of a Bavarian Brass Band, lifts a 508 pound stone during a contest for the strongest man of the Bavarian capital. In the competition traditionally held during the “strong beer” season in the Spring, the one who lifts the stone the highest is declared the winner. Adolph won with an 11-inch lift. Mr. Grenzebach’s talents also weren’t limited to stone lifting, he was also an egg eating champion, downing 26 in 30 minutes.
