In this recent photo of Bald Island Lighthouse, a.k.a Old Baldy, its mottled appearance is quite clear. Another unique feature is the fact that the lantern is not centered at the top of the tower. The lantern was salvaged along with some of the bricks from the original (1794) lighthouse on Bald Head Island. Photo Courtesy of the Old Baldy Foundation
