This is another photo by Loyd Sandgren that he took of Jacksonville’s Olympic Weightlifter Joe Dube’ putting on a demonstration for a crowd at the old bandshell at Jacksonville Beach.  Probably shot in the 1960’s.  This was from a group of photographs owned by Joe Dube’ that were shot by Sandgren who covered Dube’ before and after his medal winning performance in the Mexico City Olympics in 1968.

At the time, women’s power lifting was also big in Florida, and Uncle Joe trained a couple of major contenders in that as well.
