899. Bedford, Ethelda. Lighthouse Keeping. Yankee Magazine. June 1959

899b,c. Bedford, Ethelda. Lighthouse Keeping. Yankee Magazine. June 1959. Pp. 106-107. Interesting two-page article, illustrated with three photos, described Irene and Frank Flanagans’ life at Wing’s Neck Light Station in Pocasset on Cape Cod. The hundred year old lighthouse was still an active aid to navigation while the station was now privately owned. Great account, though too short, of the life at this charming light station on Buzzards Bay. Full issue, great early New England reading. (VG+). $9.
