The official Centennial Poster, by “Friends of the Round Island Lighthouse, Inc.,” commemorates the lighthouses’ 100th Anniversary. Round Island, opposite to Mackinac Island, received special recognition in the movie Somewhere In Time, when Christopher Reeve rowed Jane Seymour on a romantic excursion to the lighthouse.
This 22"x34″ vertical poster (28" x 40" framed size) combines a 15"x18″ color aerial photograph of Round Island and a 5"x7″ black & white photo of the opening ceremony in 1896. My framed version has the U.S. Postal Service stamps canceled by the Mackinac Island Post Office. The cancellation stamp from the Mackinac Island Post Office—an impression of the Round Island Lighthouse—was designed by famous lighthouse artist, Leo Kushel.
