UNESCO - Statue Of Liberty, USA

Made in Paris by the French sculptor Bartholdi, in collaboration with Gustave Eiffel (who was responsible for the steel framework), this towering monument to liberty was a gift from France on the centenary of American independence in 1886. Standing at the entrance to New York Harbour, it has welcomed millions of immigrants to the United States ever since.
Strangely enough it took me a while to receive a postcard of this world-famous statue...last autumn I was lucky to join the vacation rr with NY group, and have Robin to thank for this lovely view :)
