T-shirt of the Day Award in Honor of Lady Liberty!

17 Jun

Today is the day the Statue of Liberty arrived in New York City!

French sculptor Frédéric Bartholdi was commissioned to design a suitable gift to the United States to mark the 100th anniversary of the United Stated Declaration of Independence. It arrived nine years late, on June 17, 1885, rather than in 1876 … but who’s counting?

I’ll see you in a funny tee!
