After a long time away, I went back to the awesome daily vintage photo blog Shorpy.com just as they had posted this image (this is a crop).

They captioned it:

January 29, 1921. Washington, D.C. “Herbert Bell and Joe Garso,” a duo of one-legged trick cyclists who were probably war veterans. Which one this is, I’m not sure. National Photo Co. Collection glass negative.
