LIGHTHOUSE POSTCARD FROM ISLE OF MAN

The Isle of Man is a large island in the Irish Sea very roughly equidistant from southwestern Scotland, northwestern England, and northeastern Ireland. Port Erin is a quiet seaside resort in the south of the island popular for those seeking a relaxed holiday with superb coastal scenery and many fine walks. The Port Erin Range Front Lighthouse is an 11 m (36 ft) octagonal concrete tower painted white with a single red horizontal band. It is located on the waterfront in Port Erin, at the southwestern corner of the island. Lat 54 05.3 N Lon 04 46.3 W
We see on the postcard three flower stamps part of the definitive collection issued in 1998: first part came on sale on 12th February (4p, 21p, 25p, 50p & £1 values)and further flowers values (1p, 2p, 10p, 20p & 30p) followed on 2nd July 1998.
Thank you, Jean Pierre.
