About this work
Poster printed in black on pale yellow paper advertising the appearance of a 17 year old young man (born on Castle Hill, Norwick, in the county of Norfolk) who was almost 8 feet in height. The illustration shows him leaning over to shek hands with another man (about half his height) in the street and lighting a gas street light by hand. This was not Robert Hale, also known as the "Norfolk Giant," who had died of bronchitis in Yarmouth in 1863.
