I love this card. The classic beauty of the lighthouse, set against the city’s skyline makes a wonderful picture.
It shows the Chicago Harbor lighthouse, located in Michigan Lake, USA. It was sent by truptipostcards.
The lighthouse is fully automated and it was built in 1893 and moved to its present location in 1919. It was designated a Chicago landmark in 2003. It has an unusual design for a lighthouse, looking almost like a house in the middle of the lake. Unfortunately (or fortunately), because it’s still fully operational, it is no allowed for tourists to visit.
My name is Márcia and I live in a beautiful island in the middle of the Atlantic Ocean named Terceira. It is located in the Portuguese archipelago of Açores (Azores in English, Azoren in German).
I started collecting postcards when I was just a teenager but until I joined the Postcrossing Project, it was a very small collection. :)
Since then I’ve received so many beautiful cards and learned so many new things that I’ve decided it would be interesting to share that knowledge and beauty with my friends and fellow postcrossers. Hence, this blog!
I will try and make it as fun and interesting as possible and I hope you enjoy it as much as I do.
Oh, and please don’t be shy! If you feel like it, leave a comment! Hugs to all, Márcia
