that is a DLD300 lantern made in Prescott Ontario. The light is Pointe Aux Pins on the St. Mary's River at the entrance to Whitefish Bay, Lake Superior

There is quite a bit of information on the Pointe Aux Pins Range lights,but very little on this light which appears to be listed as Pointe Aux Pins Main light

When Sapulski was doing his series in The Beacon on St. Mary's River lights he covered the Point Aux Pins Main light. I'll have to look through the issues.

Thanks for the info. I've seen that optic all over Canadian lights and I swear in a picture of an American light or two.
