Photo Caption:

This undated aerial view of the Cape Hinchinbrook Lighthouse shows how high above the cliffs the light station sits. The building to the left was a U.S. Navy Radio Communication Station. On October 25, 1938, it was announced that the crew of nine men at the Navy Radio Communication Station would be removed and the building would be abandoned; all communication and radio beacon work in the future would be performed by the lighthouse crew. The radio communications building remained standing as late as 1956, but was demolished sometime after that. The round footprint in the bottom right of the photo shows where the first Cape Hinchinbrook Lighthouse once stood. (U.S. Coast Guard photo.)
