Nothing is quite so awe-inspiring, so breathtaking, so uniquely a standout as the big six-foot-plus bodybuilder whoso Herculean torso can be seen rising inspiringly over the heads of his colleagues of lesser height on any American beach. You just can’t take your eyes of him. He looks every inch the king he is. Rarely is one of these big men a bully … his own physique superiority makes him a gentleman always in control of himself. He impresses by his own supreme muscular development and needs nothing else to make him more of a standout. The photographs here, and those which follow, are of Herculean beach Adonises who so impressed various photographers that they later became subjects for studio sessions before the camera.
