Life Saving Station with Keeper
This post card was mailed on October 18, 1908. It id of an unidentified U.S. Life Saving Service station with the surfmen posed out front with their surfboats and a man in a circle at the top of the post card who was most likely the keeper of the station. Card was published by Thomson and Thomson of Boston, and has a divided back indicating that it was most likely published between 1907 and 1915. Someone might be able to identify the keeper in the photo from old life-saving records. In 1915 the U.S. Life Saving Service became the U. S. Coast Guard. This card is in very good condition and is sold as-is with no return.
