Shows a front view of the Sunbeam Farm/Sunbeam Inn building taken from across the road. This large building featured two rounded towers at either end of the building, with a flagpole atop each tower. The lower level of the building was made of rough stone and the upper level of brick. A car is parked in front of the Inn, and written on the front of the postcard are: "Sunbeam, State Road, Beach Bluff, Mass." and "Dine and dance at the 'Sunbeam'".;The Sunbeam Inn operated from the 1920's until 1955. It consisted of the main building, which housed a dining room and dance floor, a vegetable stand, a barn and greenhouse, and Gerould's Ice Cream Shop. In 1957 restauranteur Anthony Athanas purchased the property and opened the General Glover Restaurant on the site. The General Glover remained open until the late 1990's.
