1535. (glass plate negative) Prospect Harbor Lighthouse, Maine c.1900.

1535. (glass plate negative) Prospect Harbor Lighthouse, Maine c.1900. Superb vintage 4” x 5” inch glass plate negative provides an excellent view of the light station at Prospect Harbor. Prospect Harbor Light is a charming station marking the entrance to Prospect Harbor. The original light was typical of many of Maine’s smaller lights consisting of a short, white granite tower attached to the keeper’s dwelling. This second light of wood was completed in 1891. In later years the walkway to the tower was removed. Note the Victorian visitors enjoying the view from the lighthouse gallery. Glass plate negative has been scanned as a positive to show image detail. Superb clear view will print well. Great detail. (VG+). $74.
