Turn of the Century Boxing Photographs

The turn of the century marked the end of the bare knuckle era and the start of the modern era of boxing. Legendary San Francisco photographer Percy Dana traveled the country photographing the leading fighters, most memorable fights, and colorful boxing figures.

After years of searching, in 1984 Bill Cayton acquired over 1,000 of the glass plates negatives of this spectacular collection. Images are now available for licensed use by publishers.  [Next: Dana Turn of the Century Boxing Collection]
