Lancashire Wrestling

The Black and White Budget is a Victorian/Edwardian periodical that I hadn't come across before and so as a few volumes have come my way, I've been flicking through them recently. These photos caught my eye. They purport to show wrestling as it is done in Lancashire! Evidently an editor at the paper had something of a thing for wrestling because with the same few months issues there are also illustrated articles on Cornish Wrestling and Greco-Roman style wrestling, (which to my eye appears to have exactly the same participants as these photos here.)
