Johann Petursson

Associated Press reporter Gloria Yarbrough, who is four-feet, eleven-inches tall, gets a lift as she interviews eight-foot, one-inch Johann Petursson in Hollywood, Calif., May 1, 1950. Petursson, originally from Iceland, is in Hollywood to play the part of a giant in "Prehistoric Woman." He has been in show business since 1935 and weighs 420 pounds. (AP Photo/Frank Filan)

Petursson and others from the circus clowns, elephants and all, came to the hospital for their annual special show for patients and children. It was the 57th successive appearance at the hospital for the circus. (AP Photo/Jacob Harris)

I don't think Associated Press allows linking to their images. But that does not matter that much as I won't be able to use them on the website. That would get the website in big trouble. I am also in the process of removing all images from Getty Images, Corbis images etc. because of copyright infringements. TheTallestMan.com is not a small website which can operate under the radar anymore.

Are there many pics from those sites on TTM? :| I hope we don't miss too many.. :cry:

Sad that these kind of sites, and many others, always restrict access to their content to other sites that increase in importance, because that goes in detriment to their visits, rather to the copyright infringements.

Maybe there are other ways to get copies of the same pics, even from the original ones, if the owners agree to.

There are not too many left, and only a very small percentage of the total number of images had to be removed (less than 1%). The sad part is that these images are amongst the most beautiful images available. :-(

Folks, the answer is: compile your own picture gallery. I've been doing this for years, and I'm sure I'm not the only one. As long as you don't make them available online or transmit them to other people, there is nothing the legal owners of the images can do about it - not yet, anyway!
I don't know if it is so, but I suspect it was copyright problems that caused the demise of the excellent "Giants and Girls" website.
By the way, YouTube video clips from movies might be subject to similar restrictions, might they not?

Yes, but that is YouTube's problem. They are hosting the videos. We are just using their embedding option to link to them. YouTube regularly removes videos because of copyright issues.

British Pathe owns all their videos, but I have been in contact with them and they did not mind taking a screen shot of their videos and using that screenshot to link to their videos.

good interview :
http://www.grandioz.com/article/35227/

with google traduction :

GZ: Let's see what people think ...

Brahim, you measure 2m46, you're also in the Guinness Book of records.Wouaw!

What is your view on tall women?

BT: Personally, I like women with very large

Besides, I would like to meet a tall woman ...

A very tall woman who takes care of herself,

it is very beautiful and impressive.



GZ: Does it say you're single?



BT: Yes, indeed, I would be interested to meet a lot.



GZ: Message received, notice the very large women who are unmarried to his fingertips!

You know a lot of really great women shut themselves in their own

as they did their size a fairly large complex,

what do you think?



BT: You really have to take his size as an asset,

as something positive and certainly not negative ..

Before, I had problems with my height of 2m46, and since I came here,

I saw other things alone, mostly on the positive side of having a large size.

Now I'm even more optimistic.

Before, I considered my size as an enemy, now,

I consider a friend. I lived great experiences related to my size.

This is why I advise very large women having fun with their size.

For me, being very large, it's better than being very small.



GZ: But the eyes of others did it matter?



BT: You know, in my case, I'm like you said in the record books,

People often ask me with great kindness to take pictures,

I measure how they treat me in the Star, I must admit it is not unpleasant.



GZ: Never rude remarks?



BT: There is a very small percentage of people who say things, words that can be

offensive, that I do not agree-but it is very rare, most people are nice.



GZ: Can we say that now, you're good about yourself?



BT: Yes, I'm good, I go, I travel, no, it goes for me.



GZ: What can you want?
