JACK COSTELLO
« on: November 15, 2014, 05:41:40 AM »
im trying to find a photo of Jack Costello, a Birmingham boxer probably born about 1880
who was active during the first decade of the 20th century and fought for the British
middleweight title in 1908
any information would be helpful particularly from anyone in Birmingham with local knowledge
or access to newspapers of that period. many thanks

Was it a vision, or a waking dream?
