St. George Reef Lighthouse: History in photos

Read more...
A National Archives photograph from the late 1800s shows “47 men, their wives, and children (in lower right corner), posing at the base of the engineering marvel they have just constructed,” according to a photo description in “Images of America: St. George Reef Lighthouse” by Guy Towers.
 It took 10 years to build, saw the death of five keepers and one construction worker and warned sailors away from the dreaded Dragon Rocks of St. George Reef for nearly a century.
