Does anyone have any information about the Greenwich Weightlifting Club -its location; any prominent members; its dates of operation &c.?
Greenwich isn't very far from the old Camberwell Club and whilst there is quite a lot of information about the latter I haven't thus far found anything at all about the Greenwich outfit.
Were it not for the fact that I have a vintage badge for the Greenwich Club I wouldn't even be aware that it existed.
I attach a couple of pics showing and comparing the badges for the two clubs.
All the badges were made by the Fattorini Company which I have discussed elsewhere on HOPC.
