Through the Lens ... Through the Ropes
Volume 1: Southeastern Championship Wrestling

by Scott Teal

This collection of photographs from the Knoxville-based Southeastern Championship Wrestling territory are some of the best photos ever seen from that part of the country.  The 321 black-and-white photos include publicity stills, candid shots, and action pictures from both TV and house shows.

Most are being published in this book for the first time, and while some have been seen in arena programs and magazines, they have never been presented in this quality.  All photos were scanned from the original negatives and put through a laborious cleaning, brightening and sharpening process so they appear in this book in the highest quality possible.

Wrestling fans who remember the stars of Southeastern Championship Wrestling — Ron & Robert Fuller, Bob Armstrong, Ronnie Garvin, The Mongolian Stomper, Ron Wright, Joe Leduc, Bob Orton Jr., Don Carson, Jimmy Golden, and many others — will treasure this beautiful collection of memories for years to come.
