It is unfortunate that there is no date or name on this! I thought it was a neat image. It was in a jumbled up old pile of photos. I think this ma be in Virginia or Delaware from between 1927-1932.

    It's identity can be found in the words over the service doors. Can you take a magnifying glass to it and try to make it out? It's a Lifesaving Station / Coast Guard station (depending on the year, the USLSS became the USCG). Above the doors will be the station name & number. It's not 141 Rehoboth (which was actually in Dewey Beach) and it's not Bethany Beach. Maybe it's Indian River, but the cupola looks different.

    SMD, I've been trying to get a clear image of this but this is the best I can seem to do...
    When I first saw this I thought Indian River. But I'm no expert...
    Wallops Island?
    All photos were thrown into big messy pile and 1880-1960's were together, but this was w/ the older photos, of my Grandmother (b 1921) and w/ some dated 1927 an 1932, so....

    I was wondering about the big metal tower next to building? Could that help to date or ID this?
