Amazing Photographs

I stumbled across some rather amazing photographs.

These were done from about 1915 to 1920. You can find more details about the Statue of Liberty image here. Snopes.com has some additional statistics on this image here.

You can see modern versions using the same tricks of perspective in the chalk drawings of Julian Beever.

I've seen Julian's work before (if you search for his name on youtube there are a few interesting videos showing some of his work from start to finish) but not seen the photographs, which are quite something!
