March-April, 1941


Statue of Liberty

One of the most charming, popular and lovely ladies ever to cross the Atlantic to American shores was the Statue of Liberty. She made her debut on October 28, 1886. Since that time no other feminine attractions have caused American hearts to beat with so much emotion as have those of this goddess who stands with such fierce and possessive pride at the mouth of the New York harbour.

She grows more popular as the years go by. During the first four months of 1941, 61% more visitors rode out to the Statue of Liberty than for the same period of 1940. In April, 1941 for instance, approximately 33,000 persons went to see the view of Manhattan's skyline with the gray seas rolling at its feet. This was 275% of the total number of visitors who in April of last year climbed the gray granite steps of the National Monument to pay their tribute to Americanism. --Fanning Hearon.
