  • Description

    Shots of Ronnie Walker, from Wakefield, Yorkshire. Ronnie claims to be Britain's strongest man. He is posing as if he were an athlete in a classical frieze.

    MS of Ronnie. He shows of his back muscles.

    Ronnie demonstrates his strength by lifting a young woman on a chair high above his head.

    He then lifts a bar with a man hanging from one end and a woman hanging from the other.
