16200. (copy photo) Long Point Lighthouse, Provincetown , Mass. c.1890 view. Clear, close, original 8” x 10” older copy photo shows excellent detail of the second light station at Long Point. Image may be from noted early Cape Cod photographer Rosenthal . Image includes the 1 ½ story keeper’s dwelling with square brick light tower, fog bell tower and more guarding the Provincetown harbor. In 1873, an inspector reported that “a new dwelling is a necessity… the entire structure is in danger of being carried off by a heavy storm.” $13,000 was appropriated for a new tower, keeper’s dwelling and fog signal. This new 38-foot brick lighthouse tower and a 1 1/2-story keeper’s house shown here were built in 1875. The 1,200 pound fog bell was installed at this time. Photo is b/w and includes description on back. Clear, close view, good detail. (VG+). $56.
