This hand colored photograph of a lighthouse keeper was found in an estate collection of photographs from the New Bedford, Massachusetts area.

The photograph, estimated to be from the 1920s-1930s, did not have the name of the person written on the back. If the keeper shown in the photograph could be identified it would be a great addition to the history of the lighthouse where he served. (Courtesy Kenrick A.
