Alexandra Studio Wrestling Photos

 Some of the Alexandra Studio's wrestling photos used to be online but seem to have vanished. It's a shame they are mostly hidden from the fans. I'm not sure how many there are, hundreds at least, thousands maybe. The Turofsky brothers started their studio back around 1911, and when wrestling hit big in 1929 they would cover the action through to their deaths in the late 50s. Michael Burns who worked with the brothers would continue with the studio. These are some in the .com collection.
