If you have ever picked up a vintage comic book, or pretty much any magazine from the 1930's through the 1960's, you have seen the corny advertisements for the Charles Atlas at home system for body building. This image is THE PHOTO that was used in those comic books to promote the system of Atlas himself! One of the only vintage examples we have ever seen, the photo is a beautiful example that looks and presents in fantastic original condition. Stamped on the back and absolutely original to the 1930's, this is one of the most iconic photographs we have ever offered as it pertains to instant eye appeal and recognizability.
