Physical Culture: Two Cheerful Ladies Working Out in Street Clothes

Photograph of Two Cheerful Ladies Working Out in Street Clothes Posing Photography by Willis T White“Life is 10% what happens to you and 90% how you react to it.” – Charles R. Swindoll

When women first began to work out with weights, it was considered dangerous to have them lift anything heavy and so they were given only two- or four-pound wooden dumbbells. The fact that women lifted much heavier objects in the home seems to have escaped most of the men who designed the exercise. Here two cheerful ladies work out in their street clothes in a photograph c. 1910 by Willis T. White.
