Cape Florida Lighthouse and Cottage

This image is actually a composite of 21 images (roughly in an array of five rows of between three and six photographs) that Nancy took from the top of our 12-foot step ladder.

This replica of the lighthouse keeper's quarters, as it existed after 1852, was constructed three years after the State of Florida bought the property in 1966. For more information on this cottage, see this article from The Historical Marker Database.

Although we can print to your specifications any size up to the above limits to the nearest 1/16" with any mat and moulding combinations, we presently have none of these in stock.


Although the resolution and sharpness of the image should allow for this, we would need to send an image this size somewhere else to get it printed. Our printer can print up to 44" across, meaning that practically, we can print an image on paper up to 431/2". On canvas, we could only go to 371/2", to make room for wrapping the edges. Thus our in-house size limit for this image is shown above in parentheses.
