CDV of Nathan T. Burrows Writing with His Feet, ca 1870s

CDV of sideshow performer Nathan T. Burrows, shown writing with his feet. Credited to O.F. Weaver, Chicago, IL. On verso: "Nathan T. Burrows / 26 years of age." Burrows has no arms, and is shown here writing with his feet with a pistol and pair of scissors to his right - presumably he demonstrated the use of both with his feet. Other items nearby, but difficult to see. Wearing what appears to be a zouave uniform from the war. Image very light.
