Morris Island Lighthouse, USA

Just like the last US card, here again we have a lighthouse, this time coming from South Carolina. Been a while since Ive posted a South Carolina card, so here is a good reason to show this one.


US-2124574

This beautiful card arrived as an official, showing the Morris Island Lighthouse, and as the back of the card says, the original Charleston Light, which is the sixth oldest station in the United States. With the original lighthouse of 1767 destroyed by the Confederate Army in 1861 to take a reference away from Union ships, the Morris Island Lighthouse was rebuilt in 1872. Standing 161 feet tall, when lighted it could have been seen 19 miles out to sea.


well, if you've been receiving mail from the US lately, probably you've seen this stamp...it seems to be used rather often...it is one of the latest Forever stamps, showing our beautiful planet Earth.
