Blockhouse Point Lighthouse #2. Prince Edward Island . Canada . Watercolor . 9" x 12"
... my second version of this light... this time viewed from the south... looking north toward Charlottetown Harbour, July 2012. This is the third lighthouse on this site, constructed in 1876 with considerable improvements made between 1890 and 1914. The current structure is a stripped down remnant of its former, turn of the century, glory. At that time there was an elaborate balustrade around the tower lantern room and the observation deck, which is now just the flat keeper's roof... and an ornate, posted porch wrapped around two sides of the building.
