Photo Caption:

During slow times, daring and adventure still drew the keepers. This interesting photo shows one of the keepers of New York’s Old Orchard Shoal Light sitting atop a spar buoy while waving his Lighthouse Service hat. Notes on the back of the photo indicate that many tries were needed before he could establish his perch atop the buoy.
