Just as the Victorians once traveled the shorelines in search of scenic lighthouses, collecting postcards to document their discoveries, people today react to the allure of these lights that draw tourists, collectors, and maritime fans. This book examines the postcard keepsakes that lighthouse lovers have collected since the turn of the 20th Century, documenting lighthouses from California to Alaska, and the Florida Keys to Nova Scotia. You'll see lighthouses from land, air, and sea levels in hand-tinted photographs and line drawings produced at the turn of the century, beautiful linen prints of the 1930s and '40s, and contemporary photochrome productions. Along with the images, lighthouse history and facts are conveyed, along with publishing information to help collectors identify and date their own cards. Values are shown in the captions.
