This photograph of a lighthouse keeper from Virginia’s Cape Henry Lighthouse recently came into our possession. At least we assume that these folks were stationed at Cape Henry, because other photos found with this image show the old and the new Cape Henry Lighthouses. On the back of the photo it is written that the two of them tended the government lights for 47 years.
If any of our readers can provide us the names of the lighthouse keeper and his wife, we’d appreciate hearing from you by e-mail at editor@LighthouseDigest.com or by mail to Lighthouse Digest, P.O. Box 250, East Machias, ME 04630 or call us at (207)259-2121.
