Lighthouse Photo Post Card

Lighthouse

We just acquired a great real photo post card of a California lighthouse. The lighthouse is New Point Loma, in San Diego. The note on the back mentions "the new fog signal under construction." This refers to the small cinder-block building in the foreground, where a loud horn was being installed. The picture above of the front of the card accidentally cuts off the
top of the lighthouse. The condition of the card is very good, with a
few creases at the corners.

There’s a local hook, too. This 1913 post card is addressed to a Mrs. M. Cady, care of the Lighthouse at Capetown (Cape Mendocino). The card refers to "Alice & Babe," presumably an Alice Cady and her mother Mrs. M "Babe" Cady, but we haven’t positively identified them. There are still many Cadys living in the area.

The price is $40.
