Yarmouth Light


From Wilfred Allan’s collection of postcards I am pleased to present twenty-three images of the Yarmouth lighthouse on Cape Forchu. The cards are in roughly chronological order based on whether they depict the old (or new) lighthouse with the old (or new) light keeper residence. Where available I give cancellation or letter dates in the captions. I am, of course, grateful to Wilfred for permitting me to display these images.

This is the last of three albums of scenes on the west side of Yarmouth’s harbour and sound. The first album had scenes from Milton Highlands south almost to the Yarmouth Bar; the second, from the Bar south to the Yarmouth lighthouse.
