Calisthenics Anyone?

All photos property of LLF Library.  The approximate dates are 1895 to 1900, although the top photo may be even older.

Whitworth College.  Note the medicine balls, tennis rackets and the Indian Clubs, which were popular during Victorian times. Can you imagine having to exercise in these outfits in the steamy heat?
