Lighthouses in Brittany

Our Brittany, its lighthouses (Notre Bretagne ses phares) it says on the back of this map postcard.   The individual lighthouses are detailed on the right hand side of the card but it's very hard to make out the detail. It gives the colour, period, height above sea level, distance, of each lighthouse.

I found the text insert very interesting.  It appears to be a Breton poem with a translation in French:

  1. This postcard would be one of my favourites. I visited this region in 2003 with the main purpose of seeing as many lighthouses as I could... And I certainly didn't lose my time! I spent an indecent amount of money in postcards of lighthouses.


Welcome to my postcard collection! I love hearing what you think of the cards - but spam WILL be deleted.
