Andre Drapp by unknown
Two more shots of Andre, unattributed, though the head shot looks like it's probably an Arax. There is a studio mark on the second pic, but I just can't make it out (Studio Kal?).
Lastly, a bit of color as Andre hits the cover of Britain's "Reg Park Journal" for October, 1954. At the time of publication, Andre was touring the US and Canada as a professional wrestler -- a career a lot of bodybuilders took up.
I don't know the current state of Andre's health, but he was alive and kicking as recently as 2004, aged 84, when a piece about him appeared in the (possibly local news-makers?) site Vandouevre-les-Nancy.
