Three real photo postcards of Bear Island Lighthouse affixed to a repurposed envelope. On all of the postcards the lighthouse is identified using blue ink. One postcard bears the additional inscription: "Our view from the point."
The backside of this paper was at one time the exterior of envelope sent on June 4, 1945. Information about the sender and recipient can still be read. The return address has been cut, but the envelope was sent to Mrs. Edwin Corning, Northeast Harbor, Maine.
Mrs. Corning spent her summers on a point at the mouth of Northeast Harbor
