16207. (box) Cuttyhunk Light Station, Mass. c.1930’s – 1950’s.

16207. (box) Cuttyhunk Light Station, Mass. c.1930’s – 1950’s. Cardboard box was mailed to: ”James H. Dobbins c/o Cuttyhunk Light Station, Cuttyhunk, Mass.”. James H. Dobbins is listed as a Coast Guard keeper in the 1940s at The Graves and Chatham Light, among others. He is not on the roster for Cuttyhunk but may have been sent to Cuttyhunk to fill in or to help with some type of project and spent some time there. There was a Harry Dobbins listed as Keeper at Cuttyhunk Light in the 1930’s, who may have been the father, or James may have used his middle name (H for Harry ?) as his primary name. Box measures 9 ¾” x 4” x 1 ½”. Box is from Edward J. Hodgdon Company, New Bedford, who were purveyors of “talking machines” (Victrolas). Box is empty except for original tissue packing. Interesting collectible. (VG). $24.
