Photo Caption:

Although Gertrude Wellisch had some help from friends, most of the restoration and maintenance work at Sand Island Lighthouse was done by herself or with help from her brother, Walter “Bun” Wellisch. Gertrude is shown here on the peak of the roof doing shingle repairs. She must have had nerves of steel. (Gertrude Wellisch and Walton Wellisch photo albums)
