This photo looks to be the ‘before’ shot of a duo of acrobats getting ready to perform a saut périlleux à bicyclette (a perilous bicycle jump). It was taken on March 22, 1910, the same year that saw the Great Flood of Paris, the birth of photographer Willy Ronis and the death of painter Henri Rousseau.
This work (Schlax, saut périlleux à bicyclette, 22 mars 1910, by Agence Rol) is free of known copyright restrictions.
