USA ~New York~

Another postcard from the USA...and its showing one of the most famous symbols in the world and a monument that we all know... This scene, with the silhouette of the Statue of Liberty towering against the beautiful sunset sky, looks really impressive and amazing! Thanks Rose!:D

with lovely flower stamp!
Located on a 12 acre island, the Statue of Liberty was a gift of friendship from the people of France to the people of the US and is a universal symbol of freedom and democracy. The Statue Of Liberty was dedicated on October 28, 1886, designated as a National Monument in 1924.
It represents a woman wearing a stola, a radiant crown and sandals, trampling a broken chain, carrying a torch in her raised right hand and a tabula ansata tablet. From 1886 until the jet age, it was often one of the first glimpses of the United States for millions of immigrants.
