I ran across this photo while doing some research and I thought some of you might like to see it.

A very nice shot from an interesting vantage point! The birdcage lantern room is evident on the old tower, too! Cool! :)

Thanks, Stephen!

I love seeing those old shots, it's like you can close your eyes and imagine yourself in them sometimes.

Thanks for sharing Stephen. I have seen the C. Romain lights from plane, and it is nice to see what it used to look like!
