Oh, thanks for posting this today. Lets me remember the one time I got to see this area. Many years ago and on a business trip, so little time to photograph it then. I'm remembering that the Liberty Bell was, at that time, right in front of Independence Hall. Is that right? #1622931

Well, Mitch...it wasn't always where it is now. But I have never seen it anywhere else! Or at least I have no memory of having seen it elsewhere. Must look it up. #11326759

Oh my, how I do hope this piece goes further within this process. If not, trust that is not only a true 'study' of what our forefathers intended, but an excellent display of talent. #11332592
