Publisher's Card No. - Series No: 1054
Used: A long message has been written in French, and dated 22/9/05. The card was posted in an envelope, and the steel cancel stamp shows the date (twice) in intaglio on the top left of the front of the card SP 22 05. This is the earliest card seen from this publisher, and it pre-dates the information on the Internet by one year.
Condition -  A black & white real photograph with some light rubbing to the front. The corners bear the pressure marks of being held in a good album for many years - some light wear to the corners. The card has been "glitered" around the ouline of the lighthouse.
More Info: -  The lighthouse is no longer used now, but is a listed building and in 2001 received a black base, a white body, and a red top. A red l.e.d. light has been added to the top which perpetually flashes in morse code the names of all the victims of the "Titanic" disaster in 1912. Built in 1827 at a height of 90 feet, it used to flash two white and one red, but no longer. A two funneled ship and a large sailing ship in the background
