George Caddy, 5 November 1939
Max Stewart hand-balances off Alf Stanbrough’s posterior, while Wal Balmus is in a reverse hand-to-hand balance. Bearer Alf Stanbrough is in the jackknife position, which places great strain on his triceps. A professional equilibrist, Wal Balmus also ran a body-building and fitness school in Sydney and Alf Stanbrough was one of his prize pupils, used in the school’s publicity, because of his age. At this time, Wal was 47 and Alf was 56 years old.
