Mustachioed Man on Bicycle from Constantinople

Via Flickr:
A dapper man in a pin striped suit and cap balances on a bicycle in this cabinet card from the Parnasse studio in Constantinople. I was impressed with his ability to keep the bicycle upright with no brace until I examined it at high magnification. It is clear from the cross hatched retouching that there was a brace under his right hand and behind his right leg.
