Check out these cool photos of the Statue of Liberty during the construction phase. The top is the head on exhibit at the Paris World's Fair in 1878. The bottom is the unpacking of the face after its delivery to the U.S. on June 17, 1885.

I bet it was really something to see when it was first constructed. It would be nice to see a color photo of the time, but I doubt they exist.

Coney Island, 1900.
I picked this photo because it's got a hilarious name - The Flip Flap
