1950s at Old Point Loma
Although we will never know the names of these folks visiting California’s Old Point Loma Lighthouse, they all appeared to be enjoying themselves. On the far left of this early 1950s photo can be seen a tour bus and on the far right is one lone automobile. It was a time when people dressed up. You’ll notice that all the men were wearing suits and ties. (Lighthouse Digest archives)
Last Day of Summer 1992, at Five Mile Point Light
At the end of the last day of summer, young Jerzey Markow takes a swig of bottled water on the beach at Lighthouse Point Park by Five Mile Point Lighthouse in New Haven, Connecticut on September 20, 1992. Folding the beach blanket are Grazyna Raykowska (l) and Agnes Markow (r), while Gabriel Nowak looks on. Five Mile Point Lighthouse, also known as New Haven Harbor Lighthouse, was deactivated way back in 1877 when it was replaced by the Southwest Ledge Lighthouse. The light station became the property of the City of New Haven in 1922. (Lighthouse Digest archives photo by Douglas Healey)
