J.H. Macdonald – Strength Magazine – July, 1917

Here are two pictures of the same young man; one was taken outdoors, and the other posed in a studio. In the lower picture, there is far more detail shown: you can see the outlines and the shape of all the different muscles. But in the upper picture, while the muscles seem to run into one another, there is a sense of roundness and massive development that renders this little snap-shot more attractive than the formal picture below.
