    These photos of Lady Liberty are actually in Paris during the late 1870s, early 1880s before she was shipped to New York (what if this was a huge death mask??)

    06/17/1885 - The Statue of Liberty arrived in New York City aboard the French ship Isere. Unboxing the Statue of Liberty, 1885. When America got the statue from France, there wasn't money to put it up. So, Americans from all over the country responded to newspaper ads, and sent in money to put it up. One of my favorite tidbits of American history.

Unpacking the face of the Statue of Liberty. [Lady Liberty doesn't look happy, maybe she is thinking about all the tired, poor, homeless, wretched refuse her inscription is beckoning.

Lady Liberty, seen her a few times, and she's just as impressive every time! Was moved when I had the chance to go to Ellis Island and find my Great Grandfathers name as he immigrated from Magyar (now known as Hungary) and knowing that he saw her under the same sun, but under a very different light as he arrived in America.

The unboxing of the STATUE OF LIBERTY in 1885. Most people in America don't know that this piece was sent in boxes from France. Also, the designer of the statue was Gustave Eiffel, same person who designed the Eiffel tower.
