Herbert H. Luff shows off his dance moves at a celebration of some sort at Yerba Buena Lighthouse in 1908, perhaps in connection with the arrival of the Great White Fleet. The other couple is unidentified. Notice the accordion and banjo lying on the ground nearby. It was common for keepers to have musical instruments at lighthouses to use for entertainment.
