ALLEN, ALBERT ARTHUR (1886-1962)

Allen's most desirable portfolio, which is accompanied by his descriptions of the models and eccentric observations: "These seven models have reached an age of maturity practically immune from disease, ailments or malformations. They all stand far above the average; mentally, physically and morally. All true types of the characteristic red-blooded American semi-athletic girl."
