A Good Catch – Sailboats in the Harbor

We love early postcards like this.  It shows the utilitarian purpose of lighthouses – to return the seafarer safely home.  Unfortunately, with no postmark, it is too difficult to tell how old this postcard is.

Why do you like lighthouses?  Let us know in the comments!
