The Deacon's Bench
Where a Roman Catholic deacon ponders the world
Now here’s a picture that’s really worth a thousand words … or more.
Caption: Charles B. Tripp the armless man and Eli Bowen the legless man. Both men traveled with the Ringling Brothers and Barnum and Bailey circuses in the 1890’s.

What I want to know is how “armless” got what appears to be a cigarette into his mouth.

Given to him by the legless man, no doubt!
Funny to see than even circus acts dressed better than most people today.
Thanks Rudy. You got me laughing………. again.
