Cape May's favorite beacon shines brightly in 90 picturesque scenes. Photographed at different angles for contrasting perspectives, the Cape May Lighthouse is shown through all the seasons. The text traces the history of how the lighthouse came to be and the danger that mariners faced as they tried to navigate around the shoals off of Cape May Point that created disaster for many unsuspecting ships. For more than 150 years the current tower has lighted the paths of many boats heading into the Delaware Bay from the Atlantic Ocean and has been a magnet for tourists and residents alike. This will be a great souvenir of your visit to the shore, celebrating the distinctiveness, longevity, and charm of the Cape May Lighthouse.
