It is rare to find a bearded wrestler or strongman. Mustaches are more the norm. Here are a few vintage photographs from the blogmaster's extensive Physical Culture collection.


  1. I feel bad for the guy on the left in the third picture. Bearded strongmen always have a hard time keeping everyone else from putting their hands all over them.

  2. Thanks for sharing these photos, and for your work on this awesome blog!

    I'm involved in a charity fundraiser called How Not To Grow A Beard Month to raise money for breast cancer research, which involves the participants not shaving for a month and doing daily pictures and blog posts. This year, my posts are with a wrestling theme. I linked to the first picture above in today's post with full credit to you, and I just want to be sure you are aware.
