Statue de la Liberté - Front de Seine

Selected for Google Maps and Google Earth

This replica of Statue of Liberty is approximately 35 feet in height on her base, and stands upon a tiny island called Swan Ally, Paris (Ile aux Cygnes] in the Seine near the Grenelle Bridge. This exact Statue of Liberty replica monument was offered to the French by the American residents of Paris as a remembrance to commemorate the Centennial of the French Revolution. It was inaugurated on November 15, 1889 and was placed so that it faced the Eiffel Tower (so not to have it’s back to the Élysée Palace).
.
However, it’s creator Auguste Bartholdi was most upset that it did not face the New York location of the Statue of Liberty. But with persistence, as was his nature, Bartholdi finally achieved getting the statue turned to face America at the time of the World's Fair in Paris in 1889.
.
What does the tablet say on the statue of liberty, that the Swan Alley Statue of Liberty holds? It is inscribed with the dates IV juillet 1776 et XIV juillet 1789 (the dates of the US and French revolutions).
