York Aristocrat Dumbbell Set

Posted on Tuesday, October 14th, 2014 by John Wood

A look at a York Aristocrat Dumbbell Set from 1955 or so. These were patterned after George Jowett’s dumbbells from a generation before. There is something to be said for a “personal” dumbbell set. You can get a surprisingly good workout with only what is pictured here ~ and many people certainly did!

York Holdtite Barbell Collars

York Holdtite Barbell Collars

If you got a standard York Barbell set in the mid 1930’s through the early 1940’s, this is the set of collars that would have come with it.  These “Holdtite” collars are made of bronze and certainly live up to their name.
