Postcards from Split Rock Lighthouse

On the list of iconic structures in the Arrowhead region, the Split Rock Lighthouse is probably #2 between the Aerial Lift Bridge and Enger Tower as the most photographed. It has been featured on an endless array of postcards over the past century.

The card shown above was published by Northern Minnesota Novelties. The caption on the back reads:

Split Rock Lighthouse on the North Shore of Lake Superior
The rugged beauty of Lake Superior’s north shore — stretching 150 miles from Duluth to the Canadian border — is world famous. This scenic highway unfolds a thrilling ever-changing panorama of primitive forests, rushing streams, hills and shore lines. Picturesque Split Rock Lighthouse aids Great Lakes navigators approaching the Duluth Harbor and warns them of the dangers of this rocky promontory.
