20272a,b,c. Gleason, Sarah C., KINDLY LIGHTS – A History of the Lighthouses of Southern New England . Boston . 1991. 175p. DJ. A wonderful account of the evolution of a lighthouse system in Southern New England with considerable historic detail on the 98 light stations in the area.

14141a,b. (Lot 2 mounted photos) Stonington Harbor Lighthouse, Stonington, Connecticut c.1890. For more than 170 years, this modest stone citadel has stood at the entrance to the harbor of Stonington, Connecticut’s only port facing on the Atlantic. Now regarded fondly as a durable symbol of a seafaring  past, in its working years it performed the valuable service of guiding ships across treacherous Fishers Island Sound. The building is notable among lighthouses of its period for its fanciful stonework, with ornamental cornices around the tower and weighty granite lintels above doorways and windows. When it was built in 1840 it had a nearly flat roof with simulated battlements, but it leaked so badly that two years later local craftsmen were called in to install the gabled roof it has today. The lighthouse was acquired by the Stonington Historical Society in 1925, when it was converted into a six-room museum of local history and has been lovingly maintained since. The two original mounted photos measure 4 ¼” x 5 ¼” each and are clean save some light foxing to the mounts. One view provides a close image of the lighthouse, while the other is a distant view taken from the breakwater with the lighthouse in the distance. (VG). $94.

1537. (glass plate negative) Five Mile Point Lighthouse, New Haven, CT. c.1904. Superb vintage 4” x 5” inch glass plate negative provides an excellent view of the light station at Five Mile Point. The close detailed image includes the tall masonry light tower with attached keeper’s dwelling and surrounding buildings and features. Glass plate negative has been scanned as a positive to show image detail. Superb clear view will print well. Great detail. (VG+). $68.

 

4632b. (photo) Stratford Point Light Station, Connecticut c.1945.

11276. (photo) Lynde Point Lighthouse, Old Saybrook, Conn. c.1930's. Clear close view captures nicely the Old Saybrook lighthouse, on the west side of the entrance to the Connecticut River. The 65-foot brownstone tower, seen here, was erected in 1838. The lighthouse is similar to the masonry towers built earlier at New London and Faulkner's Island, but this one is considered to represent the finest work of the three. The  system of 10 lamps and reflectors was replaced in 1852 by a fourth-order Fresnel lens. A fifth-order lens was installed in 1890. Large image measures 5” x 7” and is clear and close. Light wear, a few marks. (VG). $16.

  

10502. (glass negative) Lynde Point Lighthouse, Old Saybrook, Conn. c.1900. Clear glass plate negative captures nicely the Old Saybrook, on the west side of the entrance to the Connecticut River, was a prosperous town full of sea captains' homes, and was for many years the only major stop on the railroad between New London and New Haven. The growth of commerce along the river—navigable as far north as Hartford—as well as fishing based in Old Saybrook, led to increased shipping traffic. To mark the entrance to the Connecticut River and the harbor of Old Saybrook, officials decided to erect a lighthouse in 1802. Land was purchased from William Lynde for $225, and the 35-foot wooden tower was built by New London carpenter Abisha Woodward in 1803. The first lighthouse was criticized by mariners for being too dim and too short. A group petitioned for the tower to be raised by 25 feet, but it was decided to rebuild the lighthouse instead. A new 65-foot brownstone tower, seen here, was erected in 1838. The lighthouse is similar to the masonry towers built earlier at New London and Faulkner's Island, but this one is considered to represent the finest work of the three. The  system of 10 lamps and reflectors was replaced in 1852 by a fourth-order Fresnel lens. A fifth-order lens was installed in 1890. A fog bell was added in 1854. Large image measures 4” x 5” and is clear and fairly close. Would provide a clear print image. (VG). $42.

1075. (photo) Sheffield Island Lighthouse, Norwalk , Ct.  c.1950-1970 by Booz Photos. Lovely 8” x 10” b/w original photograph provides an excellent, clear, close view of the charming stone keeper’s house and light tower. In 1827, a lighthouse was built on 53-acre Sheffield Island to mark the dangerous ledges at the entrance to the Norwalk ’s harbor. The stone mid-Victorian style lighthouse that still stands was built in 1868. The style is very similar to several other lighthouses built about the same time: Block Island North Light in Rhode Island , Great Captain Island Light and Morgan Point Light in Connecticut , and Plum Island Light and Field Point Light in New York . Great view for framing. By Booz Photos, Perth Amboy , NJ . (VG+). $42.

26169. (photo) Saybrook Breakwater Lighthouse, Connecticut c.1968. Extremely clear, close b/w photograph of the caisson style Saybrook Breakwater Lighthouse, Connecticut. In the 1870s two parallel stone jetties were built protecting the harbor of Old Saybrook and a deep channel was dredged between them. Saybrook Breakwater Light was first lighted at the end of the west jetty on June 15, 1886. The 49-foot cast-iron tower has a basement, four main floors, a watchroom and a lantern room. More stones were eventually added to the breakwater making it possible to walk to the lighthouse, but waves washed over the rocks and in the winter the breakwater was often covered with ice. On the afternoon of September 21, 1938, Keeper Sidney watched  as a light southeast breeze sprung up from a perfect calm. As the skies darkened and the winds increased, Keeper Gross and Assistant Keeper Bennett attempted to secure the station. By 4:00 p.m. the bridge from the lighthouse to the breakwater was swept away, as were the platform around the lighthouse and a rowboat. The two keepers boarded up the window to the engine room, but the waves smashed right through and flooded the room. The keepers stayed in the lantern room all through the night of what would be forever remembered as the Hurricane of ’38. They kept the light going even as they feared that the lighthouse wouldn't last the night. In the morning Gross surveyed the damage and entered in the log: "Everything swept away by hurricane except the tower." Saybrook Breakwater Light was automated in 1959 and it continues to flash a green light as an active aid to navigation. Close view provides great detail of the tower and fog horns as a Coast Guardsman makes repairs on the lower gallery. Clean, light wear. Labeled on back Photo Researchers print “a Carr” , Summer 1968… (VG).  $32.

24233a. (set 2 photos) Saybrook Point [Lynde Point] Lighthouse,  Connecticut . c.1930. Set of two clear, close views show exceptional detail of the lighthouse, automatic fog bell and 1858 gambrel roofed keeper’s dwelling. Clean, crisp, 4 ¾” x 6 ¾”. (VG+).   $32.

22477. [movie film] This is a large 400-foot roll of 8mm home movie film made in 1954 about boating on Long Island Sound. These home movies feature lots of wooden pleasure boats, large Navy ships, and damage from Hurricane Carol of 1954. Much of the film was made from a family's wooden cabin boat that cruised up and down Long Island Sound, from New York City, and perhaps to Mystic Seaport in Connecticut. The boat was the Rango from Norwalk, Connecticut, from the South Norwalk Club marina. The people on the cabin cruiser do a lot of fishing. One town had a bascule bridge, that opened in the middle. The boat is shown leaving a breakwater with a light tower at the end. A lighthouse is also shown, as is Coast Guard vessel # 83346 (see scan), at a marina dock with a Texaco gasoline sign. A large Chinese junk is strangely at the marina too. The Navy destroyer #369 is shown; the ship's name is the Thaddeus Parker, and it is at the Brooklyn Navy Yard together with other vessels. The hurricane footage is all along a town, showing dozens of sunken and wrecked boats, at finger piers and along the shore, on a dreary cloudy day. Another scene is on a sunny day at a large beach party. The motor boat apparently traveled to Mystic Seaport, where a large 3-masted ship is shown, perhaps the Charles W. Morgan, also a large white sailing ship is next to it. There are also close-up shots of the lightship Cornfield, which was on duty at the time in Long Island Sound.
