  • Harry Greb speed bag - silent film, 1920s

    Begins around 3:45, another enormous bag.



    Dig the fancy threads, he had a great tailor.

    Harry was Pittsburgh's contribution to the Sweet Science. It had an active community back in the day that closely rivaled Brooklyn's but but it shrunk dramatically prior to the Stock Market Crash of'29.

            Very cool footage. Interesting table exercises (4:44). I think he could have benefited from Heppsan's Hometraining videos.

              Maybe, have you read the Wikipedia article?
