Lincoln at the Library

I’ve been to the Louisville Free Public Library so many times, and I don’t think I’ve ever looked at this statue of Abraham Lincoln before.

I was at the library, reading up on history of the 1937 Great Flood, and saw this photo:

So on my way out I made sure to turn the corner and look a bit. Funny how I could miss something so notable on so many occasions. When I worked on 4th street, I would bike by this statue every day and not notice it.

I should really learn to be more aware of the history that surrounds me.
