Photo Caption:

Another postcard associated with the Stilo Lighthouse is the one issued by the Kgl. Verkehrs-und Baumuseum, Berlin of the Royal Berlin Technical Museum, Exhibition hall (1919). It shows a hall in the museum with a display of model steam locomotive boilers and, on a raised dais, the lenses from the Stilo Lighthouse's original optical system. We can see a disc lens, cylindrical lenses, and on the wall, photographs of lighthouses. The caption on the back of the card reads: "Leuchtturm, Stilo und Treidellokomotive." ("Stilo" Lighthouse and towpath locomotive). Apart from the greeting, the sender wrote the date "16 July 19". The Fresnel lens that replaced the earlier optical system in 1926 was taken out in 1975 and was on display in the old generator room in the Lighthouse Museum in Rozewie. One of the aims of the Society of Friends of the Polish Maritime Museum is to display this lens in the reconstructed generator room at the Rozewie lighthouse.
