Donn and Pete


While we might wish for a clearer image, I like this Scott magazine photo of Donn Farr 
and Pete Gregory.  I had a PE teacher and coach who spelled his name Donn, and he was a 
surprisingly decent and humane guy for a Texas high school phys-ed type.


  1. Well, if I have learnt anything this week, it is that there was most certainly a fad and a fashion in Britain for dressing upward in the late 50s, early 60s. Messrs Farr and Gregory both do so, without detracting from their two colossal physiques.

    1. I wonder how widely beyond the bodybuilder/physique model circles that fashion extended?

    2. Well, there is the Court record of the Montagu trial. And I do recall an mental image that has never left me, burnt so to speak on my memory, which was at the local swimming pool. As a young voyeur, I saw a man in the changing rooms who put on a very brief pair of see-through briefs to be worn under his larger trunks and he manipulated himself in the upright position. I later discovered he was in the local police! That was particularly idiosyncratic behaviour, so I just don't know.

    3. So the evidence mounts. The London police have had some very interesting characters over the years. Harry Daley immediately leapt into my mind when I read your latest comment.
