The Port Austin Reef Lighthouse Centennial Poster is the official poster printed by the “Port Austin Reef Lighthouse Association” (PARLA), commemorating the 100th anniversary of the lighthouse.
The 16”x17” color, aerial photo taken in March, 1991, portrays the lighthouse at the completion of the exterior restoration. The windrows of floating, spring ice lend character to the image. A 6”x8” sepia photo with six local citizens taken in 1915, depicts the lighthouse that was reconstructed in 1899.
A 6”x9” architectural drawing of the original wooden structure is located in the lower right corner. The perforated USPS stamps, canceled at the Port Austin Post Office on July, 11, 1999, are in the lower right bottom and the booklet cover on the lower left. I usually frame the print with a “V grooved” suede mat, blue metal frame, non-reflective glass and signed by Wagner.
