You just have to shake your head when a photographer for some newspaper cuts off the top of the lighthouse off when it's the subject of the story... I guess the only thing more amazing is that an editor would allow it to be used! Other than that, it's nice to see the work that was done.

The original Blackistone Lighthouse was built in 1851 and stayed in use until 1932.
This reconstruction was done from the original drawings by local contractors, either
working for free or at a reduced cost.

ROADTRIP!

I know what you mean Gary. I actually ran across a table at a craft fair once where someone was selling (or at least trying) frame pics of topless lighthouses. 8O
