PLEASE, NO invitations or self promotions, THEY WILL BE DELETED. My photos are FREE to use, just give me credit and it would be nice if you let me know, thanks.
The first lighthouse at this site was an octagonal wood tower, 21 meters (69ft) high. It had a round iron lantern and a 3rd order double bullseye lens manufactured in France. This lighthouse was replaced in 1936 by the current concrete tower, but the original lantern and lens were retained. It has the only remaining circular lantern in Nova Scotia.
