I cannot believe we are almost at the end of another squares. Where does the time go?! There is still time though to join in with squares and help make the world shine a little brighter. So if you haven’t already or have only shared one or two why not join us today, tomorrow or Friday. Find out how to join the square community here.

Lady Liberty would have really shone when she was being created in France, and probably also when she first arrived in New York. As it wasn’t until the beginning of the 20th century that her copper fully oxidised. Her torch however has always been brighter, and in the 1890s was even a lighthouse. Although not very successfully!

The reason her torch shines bright is partly because it isn’t the original (that is in her lobby) but mainly because it is coated in gold leaf enabling it to shine a little brighter.
