Massed Physique Models from the late 60's era


Today's series is comprised of bevies of nude physique models from the wide open era of the late 60's.  Of course, by that time the models were not necessarily bodybuilders.
We start with seven young men in the hills with a football.
Edited to add:  Always helpful, the_cham_cham tells us in the comments that Mr. Center's name is Joe Petricelli, while third from left is Jack Renio, and rightmost is Jim Horn.  Thanks, as always!

  1. Aside from perhaps John Barrington, much of the physique photography I first managed to find on the news agent's "top shelf" was imported with the pulp fiction that found its way over the pond in the late 50s and early 60s. Most of it dated from a decade or more earlier in the posing pouch era. Some, however, were publications for the world of swimming, where full frontal male nude swimmers were regularly featured - usually as teams. We had a similar odd anomaly here in Britain, where full frontal naturist publications were permitted but not male photography. In all honesty, aside from the desert scene and a football, there is absolutely no difference at all between this picture and a swimming team - which only proves that the law is often an ass.
