John Pohl

Ladies' Week continues here at Old Picture of the Day. Today we feature a photograph a dashing young man, John Pohl. I don't have any other information on the picture other than it was taken in 1918. I would imagine he was a boxer or wrestler.


  1. No deodorant in those days, but the overpowering odor of Vitalis, a popular hair dressing, would cover any other body odor. No wonder the ladies fainted. I feel sick just remembering.

  2. Can we maybe see some men with their clothes on? A couple of the women were fully dressed....I'm just sayin'. :-)

  3. John Pohl was a wrestler.

    Interestingly enough, this print is available for sale on Amazon, in case anyone wants to purchase it.

    PJM - OK, enough with the muscle guys in their tights. How about some turn-of-the-century hotties?

    (like Rudolph Valentino!)

  4. Wouldn't grapple with him.
