Rare Photos

(The following is a member's only preview of a soon-to-be-added section of my web site.)

Included with the first editions of Macfadden's Encyclopedia of Physical Culture, was a set of charts which had duotone (black and orange) photographs showing Macfadden demonstrating several exercises.  It is extremely difficult to find these charts today; in almost every case the charts have been removed from the encyclopedia. Fortunately, I was able to find the complete set in a used book store in Canada.  I have selected seven poses. These show what Macfadden looked like around 1910. He would have been in his early forties.

The hair style in this and the following photos is different from the hair style in the previous photos.
Also, he is not wearing tights. This indicates that the photos were taken at two different times.
