A slightly different version of the image of Thomas holding the pole appears in another post on the blog.

Frank Giardina

I do not know who took these photographs of Frank Giardina.

Howard Olsen and Jack Harris Photographed by the Athletic Model Guild

The Athletic Model Guild took this photograph of Howard Olsen and Jack Harris posing on a beach in 1958.

You can find this image in the Volume 8, Number 4 issue of Bob Mizer's magazine Physique Pictorial, in which Mizer writes: "Howard operates his own landscaping service in West Lost Angeles while Jack is a fireman."

Melvin Wells Photographed by Lon

Lon took this photograph of Melvin Wells, who won the title Mr. New York State in 1949.

Steve Wengryn

I think it would be a good guess the Western Photography Guild took this photograph of Steve Wengryn.

Andrew Kozak Photographed by Denny Denfield

Now, to my amazement, to return for a few moments to the early 1950's to a rocky location in the San Francisco Bay Area with Denny Denfield, who took this color photograph of Andrew Kozak, one of my all-time favorite physique models.

I have two more color images of Kozak I'll post to the blog in due course.
