Middle Bay Lighthouse - Mobile Alabama Metal Print
This Mobile Alabama metal print 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 print 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.

Metal prints are a contemporary and stylish choice that will arrive at your door ready to hang.
The artwork is printed on a 1/16" thick sheet of aluminum that is then mounted on a 3/4" thick wooden frame. The wooden frame is recessed from the edge of the print giving the appearance of a thin high-gloss metal print that appears to be offset from your wall.
Each metal print is made to your order and printed using archival quality materials that should last a lifetime. Metal prints take 10 to 15 business days to produce and are shipped directly to you in sturdy packaging.
The only decision you will have to make when ordering your metal print is how large you would like it to be.
