Description

This color postcard features a view of the Lincoln Memorial statue of President Abraham Lincoln, done by sculptor Daniel Chester French, located in Washington, D. C. President Lincoln is depicted seated in a large stately chair with a large United States flag draped over the back of the chair. Each arm is resting on the chair. His head is tilted slightly downward as if deep in thought. The statue rests on a ten-foot high pedestal. The postcard reverse is divided. The caption is printed on the left side. The number P2827 is printed along the top edge near the middle. Part of the Lincoln Financial Foundation Collection, courtesy of the Indiana State Museum
