The Shortest, Tallest, and Fattest Men in Europe, 1913 (Colorized)


In this colorized photo by Jecinci, we see Europe’s tallest known man (Cornelius Bruns) playing cards with Europe’s fattest man (Cannon Colossus) and shortest man (unknown) in 1913.

According to sleuths and commenters on reddit, the original caption of the black and white photo reads:

“Cannon, the giant Dutch colossus weighing 738 pounds, doing a game with the biggest Russian Casacque and the 70 year old Dwarf Chip”

Did you notice that Cannon is also sitting on two chairs tied together? I wasn’t able to find much additional info on these gentlemen, however another photo of Cornelius Bruns can be seen here, and a younger photo of Colossus can be seen here.
