Dramatic vintage photo of the amazing Ed Theriault, by Russ Warner c. 1952.
Theriault packed a huge amount of muscle onto his 5'-1," 132 lb. frame. He was known for combining bodybuilding with gymnastics and hand balancing.
In "Your Physique" magazine he was described as "the most perfectly developed man of his size in the world." He humbly responded: "I'm proud to accept such acclaim although I feel I don't deserve such a unique distinction." He died in 2003, age 84.
Very good condition overall but there are a number of corner bends and some white dots. Please don't hesitate to ask if you have any questions regarding condition.
Looking at the notes on the verso, this photo was sent to the printer along with instructions. "April MP, p. 24, duotone..."
