Life Magazine has produced some of the most beautiful images throughout history, and I am grateful for the collection I have archived. The black and white photography of that era is incredibly telling and I for one can stare at these pics for hours, taking in several details from the images background and just absorbing and sharing the moment. Hats off to the photographers at Life Magazine!

These pictures are of a kid named Francis Schulte who I found particularly fascinating for some reason. These are such brilliant character shots of the young man, and the images of him and the other kids getting ready in the crowded dressing room capture the moment like only an old black and white image can.

As much as I love both of these guys, the black and white imagery just is not the same when used on the modern tuxedo.

Amazing shots. Thanks for posting them.

So that little kid was actually boxing another kid? Some sort of kids' exhibition bout or whatever?

Correct. LIFE Magazine ran a story on him in the May 17, 1952 edition called 'Big Night For Nervous Novice'. I will post a link that will take you to the actual magazine online in which you can see the article. Pretty cool that LIFE has made all of this available on the internet. If you click the link and scroll to page 111 you will see the article and additional pics. Even if you aren't interested in reading it it's worth a look.

Buster Mathis on the left. Now you would think if you had the task of keeping a top contender company while he did his road work you might find yourself some shoes...........or laces for you floppy boots at the very least.
