Today's Google Doodle has everyone talking about the 130th anniversary of France delivering the Statue of Liberty to the United States.

Nearly 130 years ago, France gifted the U.S. with one of the most prolific symbols of freedom the world over. Since then, it has welcomed millions of people searching for a new life on unfamiliar shores.

To help celebrate, the Metropolitan Museum of Art shared this great vintage poster celebrating the statue, then known as The Great Bartholdi Statue.
