 More Women’s Wrestling action by photographer Loyd Sandgren shot in the arena located at Main Street and Beaver Street.  The details of the crowd, seen better in the enlargement below are fascinating.  The men’s straw hats, cigarettes being smoked.  Then there is something about the guy sitting in the right of the frame with the mustache and jacket and no shirt on that makes me think he has a story of his own.
