North Foreland Lighthouse

inscription:  Model of North Foreland lighthouse. Rd. No. 639537

height:  110mm

matching arms:  Broadstairs;  Margate

notes:  Registered in 1914 and appeared the same year in the 8th edition of The Goss Record where it was listed as a forthcoming model for 1915. That listing gives Margate as the location of the model, though geographically the lighthouse is situated midway between Margate and Broadstairs and if anything closer to Broadstairs, so both arms are generally considered as matching. The arms of Ramsgate, which lies about twice as far from the lighthouse as Broadstairs in the same direction, are frequently offered as alternative matching arms but should probably at best be considered as appropriate local arms.
