1950s Joshi
« on: September 25, 2009, 09:03:56 AM »
Have you ever seen 1950s joshi puroresu?  Neither had I until today.  I found this gem on the wrestlingclassics board.  It's only about a minute long and no one's name is mentioned, but now you've seen joshi from before Jaguar Yokota's birth!

I think the one girl with the design in the middle of her chest could be Keiko Yamada. I'm basing it on a picture of her that has the same chest design, so just know that it's not too far above a guess.

I was just reading about this era of joshi because I was reading the book about Mildred Burke "Queen of the Ring". Pretty interesting stuff. She was shocked by the welcome she received in Japan. History~!
