Description

This accordion-folded postcard booklet features reproductions of the five sculptured limestone bas relief panels of the Lincoln Boyhood National Memorial located near Lincoln City, Indiana. Each space between two folds has either an image of a panel or narrative text describing the panel with the exception of the two spaces at the end on the reverse. Those two spaces contain the text of the selected quotations from Abraham Lincoln's writings that were placed above the sculptured panels on the wall forming the Memorial Court.
