Merry Christmas!


Thank you to everyone who has visited my sporadic postings, to everyone who has written (so very much appreciated!) and to the artists and models who have been such and inspiration to me over the years! My best wishes to you all!

Merry Christmas to all those beautiful men whose names are lost to time...


...we love you and hope you had wonderful lives! Happy Christmas, everyone!

Arthur Turgeon by Joe Weber


Arthur competed often between 1960 and 1967 -- a nice, solid physique!

Sanford "Sandy" Alcorn by Dave Martin







I posted a couple of pics of "All-American" Sandy last year by Rip Searby, nice musclemag-type shots -- here's a more personal view!

Dave Martin is known for shooting his models in the nude just about 99 44/100% of the time, and Sandy, a well-known physique model of the 50s, found himself coaxed into stripping down as well. Most of Martin's models were San Francisco-area college students, so it's nice to see his take on some "name" models from time to time!

Always nice to find a slightly more mature specimen at Bruce's studio... (and thanks to Dan for the scan!)

Squanto


I believe this is George Francis "Squanto" Wilson, who played five games of baseball for the Detroit Tigers in 1911, and one game as a member of the Boston Red Sox in 1914.  Doesn't he look a lot like the actor Brendan Fraser?
