Alex II


Here's Alex Pilin again, but in a posing strap this time.
The pose itself is quite different, too.

  1. His shoulders and arms show beautifully, don't they?

  2. Alex Pilin seems to have been modest, preferring not to pose nude. Perhaps that was because he was clearly a serious bodybuilder and did not want to risk his career in very uncertain times. At least his pictures were guaranteed to be marketed which promoted that career. He certainly had a spectacular musculature.

    1. I think you may well be correct about his career concerns. While some bodybuilders in the 1940s posed nude without any serious repercussions, the 50s and early 60s were more repressive.

  3. He was Mr. Pittsburgh '53 and Mr. Allegheny '53 too.
