eight lulus in a doozy, and sixteen doozies in a humdinger.

What a bunch of baloney. To go through all this trouble and expense to relocate this lens just to rearrange the office seating and to create a new service window?

Further, what was the real need in the first place for having removed this lens from the Cape Elizibeth tower?

I am wondering how the relocation of the large lens collection was accomplished from the Shore Village Museum across town to the Maine Lighthouse Museum, one of which the former lens centerpiece at SVM was not re-assembled.

I note the lens has changed weight from 1800 to 600 pounds. The problem gets bigger and the lens gets smaller.
One million or two and one half million ---I would like to know by whom and how the value of such a lens is determined.
And Cape Elizabeth has long appeared to be quite disfunctional.
