Hand Illustrated Oregon Lighthouse Note Cards by Gail Borgman McGuire. The Pacific Northwest is as rugged and dangerous as it is beautiful. With the rapid growth of the fishing industry and the discovery of gold in the west in 1896, lighthouses started to be built along the coast of the Pacific Northwest. These original drawings of Oregon Lighthouses are done in colored pencil and then reproduced onto the note cards. This boxed set contains ten assorted original lighthouse note cards with envelopes.
