"New" material from Lon of New York

Classic era physique photos have been increasingly showing up on online auction and estate sales.  I think this may be due to the fact that many of the original owners have passed on, and their heirs are realing that the collections are worth quite a bit.  Today I'm posting ten images by Lon of New York, aka Alonzo Hanagan, that I found via such venues.  All are "new," to me at least.  We start with the cover of a Reed Massengill edited compilation of Lon's work.  Leave it to Mr. Massengill to use an image that isn't commonly seen.  The man is good, very good.
