    The wave-lashed coasts of our island nation are ringed with lighthouses. All are now automated, but a century ago they were manned - and as symbols of safety and reliability, they made a popular subject for picture postcards. This title reproduces nearly 200 vintage cards, and tells the story of each of the 56 featured lighthouses. Touchingly, some of the cards carry messages to their families from lighthouse-keepers on their lonely vigil.
