Object Description
A black and white photograph of a muscular man flexing both biceps, wearing short shorts and lace-up white boots. It is labeled at the bottom "Jim Londos: Burly world's heavyweight champion wrestler." It is a copy of an older photograph, and there are four marks there you can see a shadow from tape where the photograph had been repaired: one over the right arm, one by the right foot, one under the left elbow, and one in the bottom left corner over the word "wrestler". The original also had rounded corners, and the copy shows black in the empty corner space. The print looks like it has been cut by hand with scissors.
Origin
Owned in a wood frame by George Thodos.
