Body Beautiful

Pondicherry, 1960s.

1960's Bodybuilding contest
From the albums. This is part of a set of pictures from a sports day event at aunt's college. There's also an accompanying newspaper cutting listing the different events - athletics, shuttle, etc - and the winners.

This is the Body Beautiful contest.

By the end of the 20th century both the name of the contest and the size of the contestants would change dramatically.
