Description: Photograph of James Grover Tarver, billed as the world's tallest man, on stage at the Barnum and Bailey Circus. Tarver is wearing a dark-colored shirt, slacks, and hat and is standing in the middle of the stage with his arms outstretched. A man wearing a light-colored suit is standing on a wooden chair with his arms outstretched to measure the difference and is looking over his shoulder at the camera. Other men in suits are standing on either side of the men and on the ground next to the stage. A large sign behind the stage says, "Carl Hagenbeck and Great Wallace combined museum vaudeville and minstrel, world's most comp[rehens]ive gathering of stran[ge peo]ple, novel [...pe]rformances."
