Incorrect title

“Two men looking at broken bicycle wheel.”

Broken bicycle fork - Library of Congress photo

I don’t think the title on this photo is correct. The wheel looks fine to me. Can you tell what’s really wrong in this photo?

The full description for this photo given at the Library of Congress has the correct details, if you don’t spot it right away. Photo 1897 by F. T. Harmon.
