Slide to Digital – Faces of Mt. Rushmore

Completed in 1941 under the direction of Gutzon Borglum and his son Lincoln, the sculpture’s roughly 60-ft.-high granite faces depict U.S. presidents George Washington, Thomas Jefferson, Theodore Roosevelt and Abraham Lincoln. These men were chosen because all four played important roles in American history. The four presidents carved on Mount Rushmore National Memorial represent key themes of the nation’s history. Symbolizing freedom, liberty and the power of a dream, they have stood for 75 years high above the Black Hills, inspiring generations of families and visitors from all over the world. Image circa 1985.

With this image we conclude the posting of slide images converted to digital format. Hope you enjoyed the 1980’s images from all over the world.
