Summerside Range Front Light, ca. 1910

Summerside Range Front Light, ca. 1910 

The Summerside Range was established in 1895, but there had been a light in the port area since 1854. That first light was described in 1861 as "A lantern, on Green's Wharf."*

The postcard (written in 1915?) shows the 1895 lighthouse as well as the wagons of the Prince Edward Island Railway discharging their passengers on the ferry pier in Summerside.

The S.S. Empress ran the ferry service between Summerside and Pointe du Chêne, near Shediac, New Brunswick, from 1906 to 1916.
