I am not going to come out with a straight yes or no answer, as the evidence I have given was pure speculation and here say, without nothing to back it up, other than a hunch.
He could have used them but the fact that he was around since the mid 1940's when steroids weren't used in sports (to my knowledge) and looked the same since a very young age proves to me that he didn't.
I believe the first picture is of a young Harold Johnson sparring with Joe Louis, he was just a remarkable athlete.
