The World On My Doorstep

An ever-expanding postcard blog

The Statue of Liberty

on January 1, 2014

postcards1_3_3This awesome card comes from the lovely Maura in (surprise, surprise!) the USA. She tells me it is her favourite card to send as it shows her love of New York, where she lives, her country and her Lady, who she visited a lot in elementary school. It was a gift from France to the USA in 1886 and is celebrating their independence from 1776. The woman herself is a representation of Libertas, the Roman goddess of freedom. Thanks so much Maura!
