Old picture from a 1960 article - Manchester Guardian

Recommended Posts

I'm doing some research (on historical rugby league results), and came across an article on Japan in the run up to the Tokyo Olympics of 1964. Here are a couple of pictures which may interest you. (Copyright Manchester Guardian.)

There's no information on who is in the pictures - maybe the Yok is Wakanohana?

I was thinking either Yoshibayama or Kagamisato...  Hard to tell.

 

Edit:  After looking closer, you can make out the "Yama" kanji on on the kesho mawashi, so you're probably correct.
