Vintage Beachy Head

6 June 1985
Safety at Sea

Beachy Head (in Sussex, the UK) is one of the lighthouses I have got more different views of.

The postcard above was written and sent in 1909.  Not long after the lighthouse was brought into service (1902).  The stamp on the back and the steam ship give a better idea of the times when the lighthouse was still a novelty, and people from the area was not used to this view yet.

Beachy Head Lighthouse was automated and demanned in June 1983. The postcard below features it some years before.

This postcards were sent by John (the UK). Go to this post to see the rest of the postcards.


  1. wow. the older postcard really shows the dramatic view!


Thank you for coming. All your comments make me extremely happy.
