Antonovich Fon-Freindorfer

Posted on Sunday, December 6th, 2015 by John Wood

Meet Antonovich Fon-Freindorfer who is as “oldtime strongman-looking” as they come. Unfortunately, we don’t know anything else about him as his exploits have been lost to the sands of time. He was probably a wrestler, or strongman, (likely both)… The postcard bearing his image was Russian and written in old Cyrillic (so it likely dates to pre-revolution (before-1917)) although his last name indicates that he was either German or of German origins.
