Fascinating array...

Love the shot of all the guys floating in air... amazing how they managed that. (Of course, I'm wondering they all crashed into each other immediately following...)

That last one, as I recall, was the older brother of the man who later became Edward VII. The older brother, whose name escapes me, died fairly young, of some sudden onset disease, thus making his younger brother heir to the crown. Love the languid look in the man's eyes, and that full moustache, so contemporary for that period.

I have a repro of that Olympic poster. Amazing, how, in the period of the late 19th/early 20th centuries, male nudes were everywhere, depicting allegorical themes. The logo for the 1915 Panama-Pacific Exposition in San Francisco depicts a massive, muscled male figure, viewed from behind, straining with both arms at either side of a trench, with the exposition visible far away on the horizon. The title of this image, "The Thirteenth Labor of Hercules," referred to the opening of the Panama Canal.

The shot of the guys sitting on neo-Gothic ledges, reading, presumably studying, reminds me of life at prep school, although we didn't have that kind of architecture. But, in the spring, everyone lay outside on blankets and quilts, with all their books arrayed around them, though most everyone ended up in bull sessions, which were much more fun.
