A-158. [stereoview] Long Point Lighthouse, Cape Cod . (c.1876).

A-158. [stereoview] Long Point Lighthouse, Cape Cod . (c.1876). By G. H. Nickerson, Provincetown, Mass. This is one of the best of only two views that I have yet found that shows both the early 1826 lighthouse and its replacement, completed in 1875. This rare view was taken at a time just following the new tower’s completion, before the old dwelling with rooftop tower was removed. At this time also was an extremely cold winter in the area, freezing the harbor in Provincetown and piling up huge ice floes along the shore. In this renown Nickerson view a man with top hat climbs up the mounds of ice, with the two lighthouse lanterns and keeper’s quarters visible behind. This extremely rare view shows the two lanterns and dwelling, quite a bit closer than the other view and showing a great deal more of the two towers. View is clean and clear with just a bit of wear to the corners and light soiling. Extremely important early view. (VG+). $188.
