Tarrytown (Sleepy Hollow) Light, Hudson River, South of Kingsland

TITLE:  The Hudson River
CAPTION: Lighthouse at Tarrytown, N.Y.
From high in the Adirondacks, the Hudson River flows south between mountainous beauty to the sea, skirting the Catskills of Rip Van Winkle fame, the majestic highlands surrounding West Point, Bear Mt. Park, and the sheer cliffs of the Palisades.  From 1609 when Henry Hudson sailed the “Half Moon”, and Indians paddled birch bark canoes, to the great sloops with sails unfurled against the breeze, to Fulton’s Steamboat in 1807 to the present time, history and mystery which is so much a part of the River has been preserved in story and legend.

Hello, Again!

Thanks for checking us out!  It’s been a while since we’ve posted, but we are back and doing our best to keep adding our postcards on a regular basis.

Our posts will feature postcards of the lighthouses of the World, as well as Light Ships and the Life Saving Service.  However, a majority of them will be United States based, as that is where we are located.  As we are limited by the postcards in our collection, we will eventually add as many as we can.

You can check us out on Facebook!  Check us out

We also have a large selection of lighthouse postcards for sale.  Visit
