Information and discussion on all aspects of British photographic history
You may not have seen, but last week Manohar Aich , the Indian bodybuilder died at the remarkable age of 104. He was known as the 'Pocket Hercules', as he was under 5 feet tall, but his feats were legendary and he won Mr Universe in 1952.
I mention this because when he came to London in 1952 he stayed with my Grandfather S.D.Jouhar, who took a series of pictures of Manohar, one of which you can see here.
If you want to read a more comprehensive obituary of this man you can find it here: http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/world-asia-india-36457508
