Portland Head Lighthouse - Southeast Elevation - Blue - Etching Paper Print

Size Guide

Built during the first term of President George Washington from funds disbursed by Secretary of the Treasury Alexander Hamilton, Portland Head Light was the first lighthouse to be lighted by the federal government and received Washington's personal attention. He ordered that it be constructed of rubblestone taken from the fields and shores of Cape Elizabeth and stated that the stone could be "handled nicely when hauled by oxen on a drag." Although altered in height, it has never been rebuilt. It attracts more than 60,000 visitors a year and is perhaps the best known and most photographed lighthouse on the northeast coast.

White specks

There were several tiny white specks scattered over the black background of the print. I tried to ignore it but even my framer noticed it and called me about it.

Perfect Architectural Touch

This piece is a perfect addition to a space if you enjoy blueprints or architectural photos. It comes on a heavy duty paper and looks great!

Amazing Quality

Absolutely in love with the quality of framing on the print I ordered. It was the last frame i needed to complete a gallery wall and the color/shade of the wood used was absolutely what i needed. Would definitely order prints from here in the future!
