happy birthday Sandow

I believe today is the anniversary of Sandow's birth. That is if we really do have an accurate date for it and not one that has just been repeated as if fact.
Regards, Peter.

Wikipedia does indeed state that his birthdate was April 2nd 1867 but if that date is open to question, the only real way would be to consult with the census records of the Russian Federation

Hi Harry, while much information has been documented about Sandow and has now become "fact" there is much about his early life that we have only what he wrote as evidence. Who really was Sandow before he created Sandow and where and when was he really born? Anyone know for sure?
Regards,Peter.

If April 2nd is indeed Eugen Sandow's true birthday then today would momentously mark the 150th anniversary of his birth.
