Lightships at Dun Laoghaire (Kingstown) Harbour

I picked up this rather fine postcard on eBay this morning for just €5.76 including p+p. The artist “Jotter“, real name Walter Hayward-Young (1868-1920) was long dead when this card was posted to America in 1946. I’m not sure of the year that original was painted and, of course, the name of the lightship station on the side of each vessel is only of slight help in identifying their actual names. Once it arrives I’ll get a digital copy made – minus the postmark – and it will be just the job.
