The rugged cliffs, along with the thousands of rounded and smooth boulders at its side, creates the very striking, and easily recognizable, geographical feature of Otter Cliff, in Acadia National Park. At 110 feet high, it is also one of the highest coastal headlands north of Rio de Jeneiro. Otter Cliff juts out from the east coast of Mount Desert Island.
The Tichnor Brothers printing company published this type of postcard circa 1938 as part of their Maine series. These, and other postcards, by the Tichnor Brothers Company are officially known as the Tichnor Gloss Series because the photographs were notoriously retouched on such a level that does not allow the postcards to be classified as photographs or paintings. The caption reads, "Otter Cliffs, Acadia National Park, Bar Harbor, Mt. Desert Island, Me."
