Barbary Coast "strongman" Thomas Nolan : LUSENET : San Francisco History : One Thread

Hello, I'm looking for information/ pictures regarding a Thomas Nolan, a San Francisco native during the late 1800's- early 1900's. It seems he was a "strongman" of the time and performed in public such feats as lifting a horse cart loaded with barrels on his back. Apparently he also competed with a San Franciscan tug-of-war team against teams from other nations and territories. He also may have owned a drayage business. Any help at all is greatly appreciated. Thank you, Gary Escobedo Help Desk/Systems Administrator San Francisco Ballet 455 Franklin Street San Francisco, CA 94102 (415) 865-4717 (415) 810-8488 cell
