Johnny Eck (1911-1991) was born with sacral agenesis and had no legs. He had a twin brother Robert, seen here. He walked on his hands and had such a strong upper body he could do a one-armed handstand. The brothers joined the sideshow at age 12. They started in a magician's act where Robert was 'sawed in half' and Johnny jumped up and ran about, which was a great hit even though it left some running for the exit. The brothers never married and retired together in a home in Baltimore.
