Sankaty Head on Nantucket Island Massachusetts
There was no message on this card but the printing style is old – ear;ly 20th century? I visited this spot many summers in the early 1950’s. A favorite. One summer when I was staying in Siasconset I met a young and lonely coastguardsman who liked to hook rugs – a passion we shared on that beautiful bluff. Sounds like the beginning of a story set in 1850, not 1950.
