The long building shown here was the rain shed. Inside were three coal bins, one for each keeper for household fuel. There was also a paint storage room and an additional area for a workshop that was lighted in the day by the skylight windows in the roof. The two round tanks were used to collect the rain water from the roof of the long rain shed and were used to supply water for the families as well as to supply the whistle house steam boiler. The head keeper live in the large house that is shown with the flag tower that was used to display storm warning flags by day and warning lanterns by night. This house is no longer standing. The two assistant keepers’ families lived in the house to the right, which still stands to this day. (Lighthouse Digest archives.
