Shown here is the magnificent First Order Fresnel lens from California’s Farallon Island Lighthouse that is on display in the visitor’s center at the San Francisco Maritime National Historic Park in the Fisherman’s Wharf neighborhood of San Francisco, California. The Farallon Island Lighthouse is on the Doomsday List of Endangered lighthouses. When visiting San Francisco, a visit to the museum would be well worth your time.
