Photo Caption:

Lighthouse keeper Louis Wilks playing solitaire at Stannard Rock Lighthouse in 1954. Photos of Louis Wilks in his lighthouse keeper’s uniform are almost nonexistent. He was almost always seen wearing his bib overalls. It seems that when a photo of him wearing Lee bib overalls was seen in a newspaper story by a representative of Lee Jeans, the company provided him with free bib overalls for life.
