George Richards 1957

We have looked at George Richards before, a part time wrestler turned clothier to the athletes.
He was a opener type guy here in the late 1930's -1940's and when done he started George Richards Big and Tall shops and supplied guys like Whipper and Flanagan with their sharp looking suits and footwear. His store ads were frequently beside the wrestling ads in the sports section.

Richards also donated the George Richards Trophy which was used for the Tag champs in the 1950's
