I find the fact a White Woman was chosen for this to be exclusionary and problematic.

When I was maybe 8 years old, my family visited a museum with smaller replicas of these pieces. My mother got a picture of me in front of the face, putting my hand up its nose. She put it in a family photo album with the caption, "Liberty: a new perspective".

Actually, I just googled it - these replica pieces are now in a museum on Liberty Island.

I love the old pictures of it being built and the test assembly in Paris before they took it back apart and packed it in shipping crates to send to us.

The pictures you posted were better than the ones in the article.  The article had 7 pictures, of which only two were in NY.

There are some shots of them working on pieces in Bartholdi's workshop that are neat too.

They built wooden frames to act as guides and shaped the copper sheets to go over the frames.
