Joe Louis Feeling Henry Armstrong's Muscle

Original caption: Joe Louis, heavyweight champion of the world, visited Henry Armstrong, holder of the lightweight and welterweight titles, during Henry's last workout today, November 1st, for his welterweight bout with Ceferino Garcia. Joe seems mightily impressed by a feel of the Armstrong muscle. Joe, loyal to his race, favors the Negro to retain his crown.
