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

Colorized by Jecinci

According to sleuths and commentors 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.

What do you think?
