U.S. Life Saving Station, Rockport, in Living Color, 1905

US-Life-Saving-Station-post

Here is a colorized version of a card I previously posted in black and white, showing the life saving station at Gap Cove in Rockport. Both cards are from The Rotograph Company in New York and bear a 1905 copyright date.

As I’ve noted before, the station was build in 1889. It was originally called Gap Head Station and then became Straitsmouth Station in 1902. It was active as a life saving station until 1964.
