Abraham Lincoln

Posted by
Steven (Chicagoland, United States) on 13 July 2016 in People & Portrait and Portfolio.

Sculpture of Abraham Lincoln, spotted in Lincoln Plaza of the Lake County Administration Building in Waukegan, Illinois. Unfortunately, he was too high for me to be able to rub his nose for good luck. :-)

Photo captured June 19, 2016.

Lincoln's bust in Waukegan commemorates his visit to Lake County. Always looks like he is wearing a baseball cap in the statue !

@Ronnie 2¢: More importantly, it commemorates he was our governor and eventually our President. The home where he slept was recently landmarked. I know the woman who lives there. I should ask if she ever sees apparitions of him. :-)
