This Mobile, Alabama greeting card features Sand Island Lighthouse in the afternoon light of the setting sun. This old derelict lighthouse may seem ironically named as there's not any sand to speak of today. Yet I've read at the turn of the century there was enough of an island here that not only was there a keeper's cottage there was room for the lighthouse keeper to graze cows! In recent years Sand Island Lighthouse was briefly surrounded by sand once more, and although much of it washed away it was hoped that enough sand remains to shore up the base of the 1859 light.
There's been a lighthouse at this location at the mouth of Mobile Bay near Dauphin Island since the 1830's. It's hard to say how much longer the landmark will remain but it was a pleasure to capture it as it looks now against a backdrop of pink and gold skies reflecting in the gulf waters.
What attracts you to the image on this Sand Island Lighthouse greeting card? Are you fond of lighthouses in general or do you have roots in Mobile, Alabama?

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 ❤️

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!
