Liberty up close

ca. 1930

This undated photograph shows the Statue of Liberty in the New York Harbor. The landmark was sculpted by Frédéric Auguste Bartholdi and given to the people of the United States by the people of France to commemorate the centennial of the American Declaration of Independence. The statue measures a little over 151 feet high, while the granite pedestal is 154 feet high. Dedicated in 1886 as Liberty Enlightening the World, it remains a popular American symbol.
