Edmond Desbonnet, ‘La Gymnastique des Organes’ (c. 1900)

The following poster comes courtesy of the Wellcome Trust Library and details the famous French physical culturist Edmond Desbonnet’s efforts to educate consumers on the importance of physical culture for the body.

A jovial but nonetheless important reminder that exercise in any shape can be immensely beneficial. They knew it one hundred years ago and thankfully the lesson hasn’t been lost!
