Sugar in the Raw

I'm reading about the history of photography at the moment, and came across the work of Pierre Petit, who did a series of photographs of the Statue of Liberty while it was under construction in Paris. There is particularly one that is awe-strikingly beautiful, that I have been trying to find a picture of online without any luck.

I managed to find this one though, and while I am not sure if it's rightfully attributed to Petit, it does have that almost illusionary quality to it, as if it were a montage. Might have to scan the other one, cos it's downright beautiful.
