New York – Statue of Liberty

Of course we had to do the trip out to the Statue of Liberty – it was worth it to see how she was built – I was fascinated to understand Eiffel was the engineer that designed the structural steel framework that holds her up – he tested some advance techniques that he later used to construct the Eiffel Tower.

Some of the photos below show the moulds that were used to create her face and feet.
