The artwork on this Chicago Harbor Lighthouse greeting card is based off photos from one of my trips there years ago. It features one of the historic lights from the great lakes region. From what I have read these old lighthouses are vanishing. While still a scenic and romantic subject for many of us, most lighthouses have no purpose in the modern world.
The Chicago Harbor Lighthouse was actually built for the 1893 World's Columbian Exposition and later moved to its current location in 1919. It was placed on the National Register of Historic Places in the 1980's. It hasn't been an active lighthouse since 2005 when the Coast Guard transferred it to the City of Chicago.
I sure hope at least some of these beautiful old lighthouses survive. For their history alone it's worth preserving but they are also simply a beautiful subject, aren't they?
The image on this Chicago Harbor Lighthouse card features a beautiful day with blue skies, great clouds, and a sailboat on the waters of Lake Michigan in the foreground.

What People Are Saying
I'm a Hill and when I saw this I just had to buy it. I have so many fond memories of spending summer weeks down in Montezuma at Nanny and Paw's store. I was so sad when the flood filled the store with water but it was a testament to the community when so many banded together to help out afterwards. Just know I bought this print to frame and take to Nanny so she can enjoy it as well. Thank you so much for making this ❤️

The Fox Theatre is Definitely FABULOUS! THIS BLACK AND WHITE VERSION GIVES EXTRA NOSTALGIA I believe, is why I picked this 1, though I love ALL OF Mark's pics of the Fox. The theatre is Beautiful, I went to 2 - 3 concerts there years ago & So glad it didn't get torn down. Mark captured Great details in this pic!!

She Loves It!
My girlfriend just received the print, and she loves it! We both love the vibrant colors, and Forsyth Park, Savannah in general, and Tybee Island are special to us because she lives in NC and I live in FL, so every once in a while we’ll meet in the middle and explore together.
Thank you so much!
