The Best of DHTiSH: Lots of seamen...

While I am away on Jury Duty, enjoy the Best of DHTiSH!

I found this postcard, taken with a Kodak Brownie, at an antique mall years ago. It dates to about WWI. The dyanmic is interesting. So the big beefy guy in the skimpy dark shorts apparently took on the toned guy in the white shorts. Evidently it was quite hot - the men are literally wet in their own sweat.

I wonder who won.

I wonder if the ref had to pull them part.

And I wonder why this post card was never mailed. Hmmmmm.


  1. I like Ms. Querelle, too, with his jauntily-angled cap and festive neckerchief.

  2. Enjoying your blog! I collect old photos and this one is AMAZING.
