Friday Freedom

I visited New York City in the summer of 1973.

This is picture of the Statue in Paris in 1886.

Here is a link about the Statue's history.

Cool. Thank you.

Was it made in Paris ?

Junebug said...

Yes, the statue was constructed and assembled in Paris and shipped to New York. Auguste Bartholdi was the sculptor.

I remember the first time I saw it.
Dawn. From The Vista Hotel at The World Trade Center.

I flew into New York on a midnight flight.

Woke up to see the Lady from my window. I was ecstatic.

That was very interesting. Thank you for posting that. I've never seen the Statue of Liberty or been to New York for that matter. Jeez, I gotta get out into the world!

I remember visiting Paris and seeing a miniature replica of Ms Liberty - telling me the French either are proud of being associated with Americans or as sad they gave the really big one away... NLM
