Thanks for the link. It's great to see that there is already interest in this lighthouse. It is a unique one and that is one of the better photos I have seen of it. And I do think its cute.

It is my understanding that access to the pier on which this light is located is severely limited, and thus any restoration work will have to be undertaken from the water.

The Deck Brothers Company, which manufactured diaphones for the Lighthouse Service was located on Chicago Street in Buffalo. This light station was used for testing new models - thus the large deflector which was designed to throw the sound out into the lake, as opposed to resonating throughout the city.

I'll bet that small part of the building which protrudes over the water was where the privy was located - vertical trans-air disposal :lol:
