Russian Strongman

Very cool photo circa 1909-13, from an album of 63 real photo postcards.

It isn't all that unusual. A male nude, seen from the side/rear. This was a time and place before posing straps were thought necessary.

However, this guy is either on his way to rob a bank or very concerned about protecting his anonymity. Or maybe he's just into some kinky scenes. Love the striped socks too.

Any way you look at it, it's hot.

By the way, the album sold at auction recently for $3,200 plus a 22.5% buyers premium. Good homobilia doesn't come cheap!
