T.W. Clarke, February, 1933 Strength and Health
The 11 stone British Amateur Weightlifting Champion of 1913, T.W. Clarke is shown here on the cover of the February, 1933 issue of Strength and Health Magazine (Making this is the third issue ever.) Clarke was famed for his arm development — 15-1/4 inches – which was quite impressive for a man of his size and weight class. Clarke trained at the Camberwell Weightlifting Club and was coached by “The Wizard of Weightlifting” W.A. Pullum.
