I found finally, after a long research trough the years, the report of the Reg Park 500 lbs bench press  in the Reg Park Journal.  I think a photo of the press was no taken. That's the only reason. If there were a photo, it's quite sure that they got some publicity from it. Reg was the first mr Universe to overcome this record.

The first two reports appeared in the RPJ June 1954, and the last July 1954.
