Memorial to Smallest Man in the World

French native Adrien Esmilaire, know as "Little Mabb," a 27-inch-tall midget, was advertised as the Smallest Man in the World. He was performing in Atlanta's Lakewood Park with the Johnny Jones Exposition, a traveling railroad show of midway entertainment stages, rows of concessions, and amusement rides, when he fell ill with the Spanish Flu and died in 1918. His tombstone, erected in March of 2022, depicts his actual size.
