Woodcut-style illustration of strongman Louis Cyr holding back two horses with leather straps as his feet dig into the ground.Illustration of strongman Louis Cyr resisting the pull of two horses in 1891. This was featured in my promo piece The Little Book of Strange Canadian Facts. As it turns out, the horses were on either arm pulling in the opposite direction but when I was researching him I couldn’t find any photos of the event. That was before the internet!
