A young boy measuring himself against the World's Tallest Man.
It is small town that has seen better days, but it has a proud history, including the day, 75 years ago, when The World's Tallest Man stopped in to visit. A life-size poster to commemorate the visit adorns the wall of a now-vacant business building. A town "son" pauses to measure his stature against the Tall Man. He has a ways to grow.
