Pigeon Point Light House

Hi friends, this Pigeon Point Light house was built in 1871. This is used to guide ships and it is one of tallest lighthouse in United States. Once per year at the Pigeon Point Lighthouse they shut down the weak insipid modern (presumably electric) light and switch over the 5 kerosene lamps and Fresnel lens of the original, as it was 135 years ago.
