Waving Girl Statue, Savannah, Georgia
Here's a pretty postcard of Florence Martus, "The Waving Girl". (1868-1943)
For 44 years, she would wave a handkerchief by day, and a lantern by night at every single ship that entered or departed Port of Savannah, Georgia.
I took some photos of the statue during a recent trip to Savannah, Georgia. It was pretty cool to see it in person. :)
The statue is 20 feet (6m) in height and was sculpted by the same man who sculpted the famous Marine Corps War Memorial (Iwo Jima flag raising), Felix De Weldon.
