Paul Frecker provides the following comments:
 
"Born in Pekin in !841, Chang Woo Gow (or Chang Yu Sing, as he was also sometimes called) grew to a height of something over eight feet tall. Billed as The Chinese Giant, he travelled the world, renowned for his intelligence and knowledge (he spoke six languages) as much as for his height. He finished his life the proprietor of a tea room and 'Oriental Bazaar' in Bournemouth, a resort on the south coast of England, where he was buried in 1893."
 
Photographed by Abraham Bogardus of 872, Broadway, New York, identified recto on the mount and by his backplate.
 
Signed in pencilled (using Chinese pictograms) verso on the mount.
