Early Postcard View of Star

This early postcard shows that Star Island, before seagulls, was not always lush with vegetation. It had, for centuries, been a barren rocky isle, as described by John Smith. This view is looking back at the inhabited part of the island from the Smith Monument area past the Tuck Monument. ( Image Library)
