StampPORTLAND, Maine (AP) — Five New England lighthouses are about to be featured on U.S. postage stamps.Howard Koslow, an artist based in Toms River, N.J., was commissioned by the Postal Service to paint each of the lighthouses.

The stamps feature Maine’s oldest lighthouse, the Portland Head Light, which was established in 1791.

Others to be featured are the nation’s oldest, the Boston Harbor Light, along with Portsmouth Harbor Light in New Hampshire, Point Judith Lighthouse in Rhode Island and New London Harbor Light in Connecticut.
