15191. (photo) U.S. Life-Saving Station, Manomet Point , Mass. c.1905. Rare photo shows the 1901 Duluth-Type life-saving station on the bluff at Manomet Point on the Massachusetts south shore. View includes a good view of the beach erosion too as it nears the buildings. In 1928, the Manomet station surfboat was tossed end over end with the loss of Keeper William Cashman and surfmen Griswols and Stark while attempting to rescue the crew from the “Robert E. Lee”. Photos measure 3 ½” x 5 ½” on postcard paper, postmarked 1905. Both sides have notations but otherwise overall clean. Rare view. (VG). $14.
