Louisa Ostermann, niece of Louise Luff, sits with the life preserver ring from a relief lightship around her neck in this charming 1910 photo. Louisa was “borrowed” by the Luffs to raise as their daughter for over ten years before being sent to another lighthouse keeper’s son to be formally adopted. (Courtesy Fanning Family Collection.)
