WOMEN’S LEAGUE OF HEALTH AND BEAUTY SUNDAY CLASS, STREATHAM

Members of the Women's League of Health and Beauty at a class in Madeira Road, Streatham during World War II. The League was a fore-runner of the modern day fitness clubs founded in 1930 by Mary Baggott Stack. Vera Calvin has been a member since 1933 and recalls: 'During the war years....new centres were opened for factory and office workers, Civil Defence staff, nurses and service personnel all over the country. In the early years of the war members continued to give displays in aid of charities, or to entertain the wounded in hospital.'Digital image by kind permission of Vera Calvin.
