    a giant of a man who sat tall in the saddle.....
    Jack Earle (born Jacob Rheuben Ehrlich on 3 July 1906 in Denver, Colorado - 18 July 1952 in El Paso Texas) was an American silent film actor and sideshow performer. In March 1939, during the Wadlow/Humberd trial, Earle said under oath that he was 7 feet 6.5 inches tall.

  8. Once Mike determined the make and model I looked at quite a few photos and read a little history on it, and nowhere did I see mention of a landau roof. Some did have that paint scheme though, and I think the faded/oxidized/matte paint gives the impression of a landau roof.

  18. The caption reads that this photo has been “colourized”. That’s the word they used.

    So I made it original. Either way this was a fine babe!
