which is a great site - apparently this pic was taken on the roof of Philadelphia Jack O'Brien's gym - think thats Jack himself on the far left - can anyone name any of the others? It looks a bit like Bob Fitz 3rd from the left? Not sure who the big old lump is on the far right?

Great pictures! They transport me back in time...The second picture shows Leach Cross "The fighting Dentist ", who was the neighberhood idol of Benny Leonard. He was
a great fighter who was a boyhood friend of Nat Fleischer of Ring Mag...Keep em coming
Dougie and Rocky.......

No title on this one - but pretty sure it's Arturo Godoy seeking some respite inclose to Joe Louis' shoulder (he's not gunna get it)
