Here's an illustration from Robert Elmer's "Archery" (1926)
- an activity later reprised most famously by Lilia Stepanova.
I don't have a copy of "Archery" ....perhaps anyone who anyone who does could take a look & let me the know the context of the illustration (& scan & post) please.

Amazing photo. I looked her up on Bing, they have other photos also, which it is probably best my wife didn't notice my looking at!

Ah, but can she actually hit a target like that? On some of the other photos she is balanced on her hands, looking at the camera while holding the arrow back....
