The tallest documented human being of modern times, Wadlow (1918–1940), who reached a height of 8´11?, made his living as a touring novelty attraction and shoe company spokesman before dying at the age of only 22. Vintage glossy 3.5 x 5.5 postcard photo, signed on the reverse in pencil, “Robert Wadlow,” with “19 yrs old, July 22, 1937,” written under his signature, perhaps in Wadlow’s hand. In fine condition, with tack hole to top edge, and scattered light silvering and surface marks to image side. Signed side shows some scattered light soiling. Accompanied by a second unsigned identical photo.
