Page 36 in Griver family scrapbook, 1910s-1970s - page in album
- The cuttings on this page relate to Leslie and Harry Griver, and their shared talent for boxing and weightlifting. One article talks about Harry entering the army, and several relate to his weightlifting club in Dalston. At the top is a large illustrated cutting about a race which Harry narrowly lost, where the contestants had to dress as waiters and carry trays of drinks. In the bottom right hand corner is an article which quotes Leslie Griver talking about rock and roll. Although he thought dancing was good exercise, Leslie was very concerned that 'all night parties with dancing to gramophone records' would 'lead to poor health in later years'. This is ironic because Leslie himself worked as a dance promoter at the height of the jazz era in the 1920s.
