11338. Wardius, Ken, Barb Wardius, NPLH Friends. North Point Milwaukee Lighthouse. Arcadia. 2011. 128p. Soft wraps. 180 vintage photographs. The North Point Milwaukee Lighthouse, neatly nestled in beautifully landscaped Lake Park on Milwaukee’s east side, is a local maritime jewel. Incorporated as part of legendary landscape architect Frederick Law Olmsted’s grand design for this scenic urban park, North Point rests far atop a bluff overlooking Lake Michigan, making it one of the highest light stations on the Great Lakes. Three distinctly different lighthouses have been located here, each with its own unique story. Notable keepers include Georgia Stebbins, who came to North Point as a sickly young woman and was transformed by fresh air and hard work into a feisty, dedicated lightkeeper and served with distinction for over 30 years. Abandoned and boarded up for many years, North Point has been resurrected from near ruin. Today, the North Point Lighthouse Friends see to it that this historic sentinel is preserved for future generations. This interesting volume draws images from public and private collections, most never before published. Superb photographs of the stations, the men, equipment  and more, well worth it for the photos alone. (M). $21.99.
