Norm Tousley worked for several golden age physique photographers,
but this one is unattributed in my database and on line.

  1. As you know, Norm made the rounds. He did a lot of photos for David Martin and I suspect this is one of them. Just a hunch, though.

  2. When I see a photo of Norm Tousley, I think of Reverend Brown's sermon in "Coming to America." There is a gawd!!

    1. I've read believable reports that Norm was working as a fireman in Alameda, California when Dave Martin discovered him. I'd let him carry me out of a burning building any day. (Actually, I'd let anybody carry me out of a burning building. One can't be picky in such situations.) Martin was also said to have photographed a few Bay Area policemen, too, but I haven't seen any of them identified. Maybe they are among is "unknown" models.

    2. I completely forgot that he was a fireman. He served on the Alameda Fire Department for 25 years and retired at the rank of Lieutenant in 1974
