EDITORS COMMENTS
Captured in the nostalgic charm of the 1960s, this print showcases two spirited twelve-year-old girls engaging in an unexpected 'curtain-raiser' before a delightful children's film at The New Palace Cinema in Holmewood, Derbyshire. With their gloves on and determination gleaming in their eyes, these young boxers epitomize strength and resilience beyond their tender age. The brainchild behind this unique spectacle was none other than the cinema manager, William Smeeth. With the consent of both girls' parents, he orchestrated these thrilling bouts to add an extra touch of excitement to the cinematic experience. Little did he know that he would be capturing a moment frozen in time that would continue to captivate generations. In an era where gender roles were more rigidly defined, these fearless girls defied societal expectations by fearlessly stepping into the boxing ring. Their courage serves as a testament to breaking barriers and challenging norms even at such a young age. Dressed impeccably for battle, adorned with vintage attire reminiscent of simpler times, they embody grace and tenacity simultaneously. This photograph not only captures a remarkable sporting event but also encapsulates the spirit of camaraderie between two fierce competitors who shared a common passion for sport. As we gaze upon this snapshot from yesteryears, let us celebrate these trailblazing youngsters who dared to challenge conventions while reminding us all that strength knows no boundaries.
