The Cross, San Salvador, Bahamas

Bahamas-1, originally uploaded by Abhishek's Received Postcards.

A nine-foot-high whitewashed cross at Landfall Park marks the spot where Columbus presumably landed. The tall, stark, white cross (Mile Marker No. 6), perhaps the most photographed monument, stands at the edge of the water. The white cross, erected on 25th December 1956 by Ruth Durlacher Wolper, commemorates the landfall of Christopher Columbus on San Salvador, during his discovery of the New World in 1492.
