Does anyone know the fate of the James Earle Fraser's statue of Washington?

Hi :)

Like most large scale sculpture at the 1939 NY World's Fair, the 65 foot Washington on Constitution Mall was (from memory) painted plaster over wood and was demolished in 1941.

Best wishes,

Eric

Thanks, Eric.

How about demolition pictures from '41. There seems to be few on this site; however, when I try to view them, there is no image included, just a file reference name.

Hello again :)

Well, I think one of my color ones is still posted here. Small, but color. Too many of my images and other stuff been ripped off various sites by all kinds of entities so I no longer post much. I recall one author (a female Jimmy boy, not you and your radioactive genealogical nonsense...) who contacted me from seeing me here, a book cover...several..oh forget it. Blood under the bridge. Look here for this small color image I mentioned:

Demolition Slide

Best,

Eric
