A trip to the last century

1930: Liberty's head

The Statue of Liberty was a gift from France to the United States to celebrate their alliance during the American Revolution. Initially planned to be unveiled in 1876 in conjunction with the nation’s centennial, the statue was eventually completed in 1885. Although the monument was considered a gift, the planning and funding efforts were a joint collaboration. In this Getty photo, taken from the statue’s torch, a group of people can be seen leaning out of the head.
