Cow Palace Wrestling In A Bygone Era

South San Francisco, CA - July 17th, 2012

Cow Palace wrestling in a bygone era by Mark Pritchard August 21st, 2008 @ 8:56 AM During the 1960s, professional wrestling was huge at the Cow Palace. There are vast websites devoted to the phenomenon, which was part of a circuit that included Sacramento. Now a new book, When I Shot Good & Bad Guys Who Wrestled at the Cow Palace, commemorates the era. The book collects photographer Jim Fitzpatrick’s work documenting the bouts held by promoter Roy Shire, a former wrestler who became the biggest wrestling promoter in Northern California in the 1960s (scroll down in that page to “The Beginning” for Shire’s story). You can order When I Shot Good and Bad Guys here. shareshare Tags: 1960s, Cow Palace, professionalWrestling, RoyShire, wrestling Posted in Books, Cults, Entertainment | 1 Comment »
