1880: The Arm of the Statue of Liberty on Separate Display

C. 1880: THE ARM OF THE STATUE OF LIBERTY IN MADISON SQUARE GARDENS, NEW YORK


In order to fund the Statue, elements of it were shipped from Paris to New York and exhibited to the public – such as the the arm and torch, on display here in Madison Square Park, New York.

The arm and torch could be seen in there for six years, from 1876 and 1882 – and for 50 cents, it was possible to climb up to the torch’s balcony.
