Once upon a time, The Liberty Bell, symbol of American Freedom was freely accessible, displayed inside Independence Hall. Now it’s housed in a special ‘jail’ where you can look but not touch — after you go through the metal detectors.
I took this photo of the Liberty Bell in March 1972, nearly 40 years ago. I like the image: Real people reflecting on The Liberty Bell in a real setting. Have a safe holiday and remember why we celebrate July 4 in the U.S.
