Chicago Harbor lighthouse
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.
