We managed to find a rare image of Georges Letto breaking a chain. Like many strongmen of the day, Letto also did some professional wrestling on occasion.

Georges Letto

Posted on Thursday, October 11th, 2018 by John Wood
Not much is known about Georges Letto. It appears he was a German strongman who performed in the early 20th century, and based on this postcard, we do know that he has an impressive repertoire: Looks like he did the human link, chain breaking, heavy supporting feats, muscle control and nail driving — all traditional feats and all crowd pleasers.
