The Liberty Bell

Dublin Core

Title

The Liberty Bell

Description

The color illustration post card consists of the Liberty Bell front and center on a hanging stand for display. There are two plaques on either side of the bell and the notorious crack is visible in the photo. There is also writing that can be seen on the bell from the angle the illustration focuses on. In the background you see a set of white banister stairs leading up to another floor. The walls are all white with doors in the right hand corner leading to another area. The floor is a brown color that is most likely wooden.
