Fred Welsh, lightweight boxer. From a newspaper article, March 23, 1913: "Fred Welsh, lightweight pugilist, boarded the Mauretania to-day at Liverpool for New York, after visiting friends in Wales. His manager said he had offered $15,000 for a fight with Perky McFarland at the National Sporting Club. He is sailing because James Coffroth has offered him more for a fight with MacFarland in America." Bain News Service, publisher. Vintage photographs provided by LOC. Original Medium: glass negative.
