The collection of photos we're about to show you were originally captured on January 29, 1921. During the early 20th century, one-legged bicycle duo Herbet Bell and Joe Garso would perform cyclists tricks around the streets of Washington D.C. Each rumored to have lost a limb at war, the imagery you're about to see helped immortalize these two men as entertainers, and demonstrates their will to achieve greatness, even from the most traditional means.
