Radio Light

On July 13, the United States Postal Service issued a new set of lighthouse postage stamps depicting lighthouses located on the New England coastline.

In conjunction with the stamp issue, I present a postcard depicting another New England lighthouse and a nearby wireless station: Highland Light in North Truro, Cape Cod, Massachusetts. A Naval radio station was located at Highland Light in 1904, assumed great importance during World War I and was guarded by a detachment of Marines. (Source: Highland Lighthouse History)
