Description

This tinted halftone postcard features a front view of the bronze statue of President Abraham Lincoln done in 1909 by sculptor Charles Henry Niehaus. Located in Library Park in Kenosha, Wisconsin, President Lincoln is shown seated with his left leg crossed over his right knee holding a document in his hands. The sculptor depicted Lincoln with a pensive and somewhat sad appearance. The pedestal bears a wreath surrounding the inscription "1809 Lincoln 1865." The image is surrounded by a white border with the caption printed in the top margin. The number 102219 is printed in the lower right corner of the border. The postcard reverse is divided.
