High, helical, bicycle circus act from 1900 looks more fun than dangerous

From the National Library of Ireland

Not quite a Wall of Death, but this must surely have been quite a thrilling act for audiences at Lloyd’s Circus, nonetheless….

Lloyd’s Circus (aka Lloyd’s Mexican Circus) toured Ireland and Britain. This performance was probably in Waterford…circa 1900.
