    4. Musty Muscle

      Of globed barbells and bellies swelled. Of beer garden lifting and overhead shifting. The days when abuse meant too many steaks chased down by too much beer.

      Hi Carl: Pleased to read that this image of Stanislaus is new. I know this was taken by a photographer in Vienna based upon the verso. As I think about it I believe this was probably taken in 1902. Stan wrestled Anton Tomasevic in Vienna before 1903. If one queries Anton Tomasevic on the site there was some discussion between myself and Gherardo about him. The earliest appearance I see for Stanislaus is in Alexander von Guretzky's wrestling book. Gherardo mentioned him for his book titled, Lexikon der Schwerathletik. Gherado supplied a scan of the book. Guretzky is a reliable source and he places Stanislaus second to Alexander Aberg in St. Petersburg in 1900. By the way, I believe that Alexander Aberg is the most underrated wrestler of that era. I am attaching now another image of Stan. It's a printed postcard. This is the only one I have seen not that this means much. I am guessing that this will be new too.-Michael
