Cadet Taylor

Our final body study photo is another of those somewhat rare St. Mary's Pre-flight School 
pictures where the cadets are fully nude.  This one was named Taylor.



  1. I don't see the point of publishing these posture photos even though they are from the past. It might just be slightly interesting in passing to know these types of photos were taken. Particularly the first photo of a WWII hero-is this honouring his memory? It is a disrespectful invasion of privacy since the photos were never meant for public consumption.

    1. You are entitled to your opinion, and I did consider your points before posting these. They are, however, part of history, and 99% of the subjects are almost certainly deceased. As for the hero, his family put a cropped version of the image I posted on his memorial page.

  2. I’m glad these photos exist. And I am sure many families are happy for any photos from another time. I do accept it’s a complex issue.
    Unrelated a lot of band played concerts that were illegally recorded without permission by different venues. These recordings were never meant to be made or released. But decades later almost all of the bands are happy the recordings exist and approve of their official release. An unexpected look back at another time.

  3. They are a part of history. In looking at all of them you wonder just how many survived and were able to come home and get on with life as opposed to the ones who didn't. Again, a reminder of what these men did for us. Thank you Jerry.
