Strong Men (and a few wrestlers) Day

It's time for another group of late 19th and early 20th Century strong men and wrestlers.
We start with Georg Hackenschmidt, who's showing something through his trunks.



  1. I love the way trunks and rowing and wrestling singlets from this era are so revealing. Especially when wet.

  2. I saw a strongman at the state fair when I was a kid.
    His singlet showed thru all, no secret how much or what proportion. A seam ripped and when his balls fell out he dropped the weights and left the stage.
    My buddy and I couldn't wait to tell the other guys at school.
