Sandy Allen, 1955-2008

Sandy Allen, at seven foot seven and a quarter inches the tallest woman in the world, dead at the age of 53. Allen died at a nursing home in Shelbyville, Indiana. Springfield, once again, loses out.

I suspect that 53 is a pretty good age for someone of such outsize proportions. Robert Wadlow made it only to 22.

Wadlow was 22? He looks 50 in that photo.

He also doesn't look anything like 8'11", either, but I guess the camera can play tricks on us.

I dearly hope so, because I look exactly like Robert Earl Hughes in current photos.

Yeah, that's not Robert Waldow in the pictures.
they were just demonstrating how tall Allen is
