No. 4 - Julian Duarte, originally posted by Men From Back Then

Way back when, I replied to a viewer query about which other blogs were my personal favorites.  
Of course, Men From Back Then easily made the list, and I used this borrowed photo of Julian Duarte by Bruce of LA to plug my friend James' fine blog:  I'm tempted to say that Big Dude may have made multiple visits to this one, helping it make No. 4.



  1. Ha! I think Big Dude has it as a screen saver! 😀 Thanks for the kind words.

    P.S. I'm not sure where I originally got the model's name; however, I changed it to Julian DANTE sometime after the original post. I think it was a copy of BODY magazine I found where he appeared in a multi-page layout. The magazine gave us the Dante name and attributed the photos to Kensington Road.

  2. JULIAN DANTE was photographed by Bruce Bellas before his death in 1974. Kensington Road published the photos of which I have 10. Several of these photos appeared in the September 1976 issue of BODY Magazine. I think JULIAN was a Jock and I suspect he was a BasketBall Player. Great Photos.!

  3. I can totally see why this is a Top 10 Photo and many fans favorites. I wish there was more information about JULIAN.

    1. He looks like the Dave Martin type, but not this time.

  4. Oops! My secret is out! Yes, guilty as charged.
