American Continental Weight Lifters’ Association Notes – Strength Magazine – March, 1927

The new year heralded our first Philadelphia show for 1927 at our new headquarters, the gymnasium of the Philadelphia Academy of Physical Training, which is under the management of our brother member, Mr. Ormin Linn, a former West Point graduate and amateur wrestling champion. The new place is splendidly located on the southwest corner of Fifteenth and Race Streets, which is only about five minutes’ walk from the central city Pennsylvania Railroad Station. All being well we expect to make this the Philadelphia home of the A.C.W.L.A. for 1927, where the shows will be held the first Saturday in every month, commencing at 8 P. M.
