Re: The First Protein Shaker?

Hi all,

Thanks so much for the comments. I really do appreciate that.

Shall have a route round the Lalanne, Abe and Gironda stories and see what I find. If I turn anything up I'll let you know!

Best wishes,

Conor

The First Protein Shaker?

Hi all, Bit of a strange one, but I'm interested in learning about the first commercially produced protein shaker. I know powders were being produced by the 1950s, did the shaker bottle come soon after? Have spent quite a while searching online but to no avail so any ideas would be welcome! Thankful...

Re: Irish Physical Culture

Hi Colin, How're you getting on? Apologies for my late reply, I hadn't realised anyone else posted. Fascinating. How long did you run the blog for? Would be interested in seeing more on that as the 1950s onwards is when it really seemed to kick into gear. Will be sure to check out the IAWLA. Is that...

Re: Irish Physical Culture?

Hey folks, Thanks so much for the replies thus far, have gotten in contact with David Webster who generously gave his time. Am similarly plundering his works for leads! At the moment I'm hoping to look at both Northern and Southern Ireland so anything at all is appreciated. Finally on the point of u...

Irish Physical Culture?

Hey Folks, I am currently doing a PhD on the physical culture movement in Ireland from 1890 to 1939 and am wondering if anyone knew of any Irish publications relating to physical culture? Most of the books/magazines/courses seem to have been foreign imports from the UK and USA but I'm hoping for som...

Re: Indian Clubs?

Hi everyone, Thanks so much for your informative replies. I wasn't aware the British library had old H & S magazines. I will be scouring through their archives now in the coming weeks.
