Historical Photographic Collections of Lighthouse Images

I have been privileged to be given access to images taken by the following people. Slides had to be scanned and digitally cleaned and enhanced to bring them back to close to their original state. Small black and white photos have been scanned at a high resolution to reproduce excellent detail and of course there are more recent high quality digital images.

Each of the collections shows our lighthouses from a different perspective and time within our maritime history
