A while back someone posted drawings of gyms from what appeared to be late 19th century or beginning of 20th. Guys climbing ropes etc., I tried to find the thread by searching to no avail. Can someone point me to a book or website?

I'm not sure about the drawings, but there's a photo of New York Sports Club from 1927 in this work/family safe article about muscle-ups:

Jeff,

I posted this pic and you had already pointed me in the right direction. I was curious about the copyright issue because we are doing a flyer for the Arnold Classic and I was going to use the images. Has anyone found the book these came from, each person is numbered in the pic I posted. I am assuming there is some type of description for each exercise.
