Scenic Postcard – Souter Lighthouse – Marsden, Sunderland (In The Pink)

£1.50

Ah, Nen Left - more coming soon.

Description

From Local Artist Neill C. Woods this is one of a range of postcards reminiscent of the postcards by Donald McGill whose seaside scenes and scantily clad ladies were all the rage from the 1930’s to the 1980’s.

Opened in 1871 the lighthouse is located on Lizard Point but takes it’s name from its intended sight at Souter Point further south. But Lizard Point offered better visibility as the cliffs there are higher.

It was decommissioned in 1988 but served as a radio navigation beacon until 1999 when it closed.

It is now owned by the National Trust and open to the public.

For the motor enthusiasts the vehicle is an Austin Healey ‘Frogeye’ Mk1 Sprite.

Size: 13cm x 10.5cm
