Liberty Bell on Main Street - 1950 - Lancaster SC Photos


The Liberty Bell rings out on Main St. in 1950 as children and teens cover their ears. 

The bell was a replica given to South Carolina by the U.S. government and now sits on the statehouse grounds in Columbia. The event seen here was part of a national campaign promoting U.S. Savings Bonds. 

This image is looking south on Main and the Coca-Cola sign at left is near the intersection of Arch and Main streets.
