Rare view of the top of the Statue of Liberty's Hair taken from the Torch, ca. 1930


Circa-1930 tourists peer out of the Statue of Liberty's crown at a photographer on the torch, which has been closed to the public since a 1916 explosion on a nearby island. From the flame's tip to the ground is 305 feet (93 meters).

Cradled in the statue's left arm is a tablet bearing the date of U.S. independence in Roman numerals: July IV, MDCCLXXVI. Independence Day 2009 will see the reopening of the Statue of Liberty's crown.
