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"
