Chinaman Lighthouse and Fireboat
Edward M. Cotter Fireboat and Chinaman Lighthouse in Buffalo NY Harbor.
This is a Ready to Hang Original Photograph.
All images are laminated to protect the photographic image from moisture and dirt.The ultra-hard scratch-resistant laminated surface is waterproof/weatherproof and can be cleaned easily – just avoid direct sunlight.
I then float mount the image by adhering 2 pieces of wood on the back of a lightweight, yet rigid, expanded polyvinyl substrate which is excellent for mounting photographic images thus giving it a sturdy surface to hang on the wall. Floating artwork creates such a lovely effect that can enhance the overall beauty of the artwork and look great on any wall.
I provide the 3M® command strips needed to hang the photograph. No additional tools are needed, no holes in the wall, no heavy glass to worry about breaking.
This hanging system I use is the easiest, safest, most ideal way to hang all my photographic art.
-Available in 5 sizes, 8x10 and 11x14 size presented in protective window box (ready to wrap for gift giving).

The Edward M. Cotter Photo
A fireboat in use by the Buffalo Fire Department at Buffalo, New York. Originally named William S. Grattan, she was built in 1900 by the Crescent Shipyard of Elizabeth Port, New Jersey. Due to age she was rebuilt in 1953 and renamed Firefighter upon her return to service. The following year she was renamed Edward M. Cotter. Her namesake, Edward Cotter, was a Buffalo firefighter.
*Edward M. Cotter is considered to be the oldest active fireboat in the world and was designated a National Historic Landmark in 1996.
The Buffalo Lighthouse, also know as the "Chinaman's Light"because of it's Chinese-hat shape at the top. It is the oldest building in Buffalo that’s still standing on its original foundation, and the 61-foot-tall structure is one of the oldest along the shores of Lake Erie. It was completed in 1833.
