This photo was taken at the Langridge School of Physical Culture, 278 George St., Sydney, on 3 January 1930. It depicts Leo Lermond, the then current (1929) U.S.A national 1 mile champion (i.e. definitely not a "German"), receiving a massage from Mr. Selfox. This was the morning after Lermond had arrived in Sydney aboard the Sonoma.

This very similar photo taken on the same occasion was published in that day's edition of The Sun
http://trove.nla.gov.au/newspaper/article/226025904

It appears that this was a just a precautionary massage (i.e. to loosen up muscles and tendons after a long sea voyage) before his first training session held later that day at the Sydney University oval, see:
http://trove.nla.gov.au/version/199370225
rather than a treatment for some serious physical complaint.
