Thank you for posting.

From photographs and film it's striking how much sumo looks the same across eras, except the guys were a little smaller and the fans dressed more respectfully.

I loved the old Kuramae KK. Iremember hanging outside the shitaku-beya telling each rikishi "gambatte" as they headed towards the hanamichi.
