Title The Bahama House
Collection Postcard Collection
Object Name Postcard
Description Postcard depicting a house with a saw-tooth roof and porches on both levels. The caption reads, ‘The Bahama House, Key West, Florida’. The description on the verso reads, 'The "Bahama House", built in the Bahamas many years ago, it has long been a landmark in Key West. The fact that its morticed and pinioned timbers were taken apart in the place of its origin, transported in schooners and erected here, has given rise to the weird legend that it was floated here a la Noah's Ark.'
Artist Published by L.A. Valladares & Son, Key West, Florida.
