Robert Wadlow


Robert Wadlow, originally uploaded by jimfrazier.

Robert Wadlow was Alton, Illinois' major claim to fame - he was (and still holds the record for being) the tallest man who ever lived. He was 8ft, 11.1 inches tall. This statue is LIFE SIZE and is located in Alton. en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Robert_Wadlow

For purposes of scale, I'm (on a good day, with low barometric pressure and humidity and with a song in my heart) about 6'2"
