The Atlanta Skyline
|I'm not sure where I was when I shot the skyline photo. It must have been from the Olympic Stadium. That's the only place I remember being that high up.|

Georgia's Replica Liberty Bell
Fifty-five bells were struck as part of a savings bond drive held from May 15 to July 4, 1950 with the slogan "Save for Your Independence." They were given to the 50 states, the District of Columbia and the U.S Territories, Puerto Rico and U.S. Virgin Islands. The Truman Library in Independence, MO has one (Harry was president) and one is in Annecy-le-Vieux, France the city where the replicas were cast in 1950.
The bells were to be displayed for the public and rung on patriotic occasions. Some are rather difficult to locate as they have been relegated to storage and/or refurbishing or to display in universities, libraries and museums.
Those I could find located near or in capitols as originally intended are pictured on these pages.

People were lined up for three blocks waiting to enter Centennial Olympic Park. We were from sidewalk to sidewalk. You'll remember there was a bomb exploded there about two weeks before our visit. But things were peaceful and serene while we were there. Just as the park was designed.
