    These are pictures created by men in uniform standing in a set pattern. The photographer then stood on a high platform to take the picture. If you click on each picture you can distincly get a better look at the men used.

    Some info about the Statue of Libery picture:
    Base to shoulder: 150 ft
    Right arm: 340 ft
    Right thumb: 35 ft
    Thickest part of body: 29ft
    Left hand (length): 27 ft
    Face: 60 ft
    Nose: 21 ft
    Flame on torch: 600 ft

    Number of men in flame of torch: 12,000
    Number of men in torch: 2,800
    Number of men in right arm: 1,200
    Number of men in body, head and balance of figure only 2,000
    Total men: 18,000

    The day on which the photograph was taken was extremely hot and the heat was intensified by the mass formation of men (some fainted). The dimensions of the platting for the picture seem astonishing. The camera was placed on a ghigh tower. From the position nearest the camera occupied by Colonel Newman and his staff, to the last man at the top of the torch as platted on the ground was 1,235 feet, or approximately a quarter of a mile.
