Middle Bay Lighthouse - Mobile Alabama Greeting Card
This Mobile Alabama greeting card features the historic Middle Bay Lighthouse. The Middle Bay Lighthouse is a Screwpile style lighthouse that was built in 1885. The lighthouse was automated in 1935 and deactivated in 1967. The original lantern tower atop the light was removed the same year. I wanted to depict the lighthouse closer to its original appearance rather than how it looks today.
The lighthouse seen on this card stands in Mobile Bay where it has stood for over a century but there is discussion of moving it inland to reserve it someday and there is active work to stabilize and restore the historic building. It's apparently one of the few remaining screwpile style lighthouses still at sea today.
History aside, it's a beautiful historic structure in a gorgeous location. Imagine life at the turn of the previous century living out there for the lighthouse keeper and family - an isolated but scenic place to call home.
