BR-124. (lot light station photographs) U.S. Coast Guard Official photos c.1950-1980. In 1968 the Coast Guard ordered a compilation of unit histories including light stations. Each station was to send in a short history and photos. The Coast Guard put these together in binders and continued to update them through the 1980’s. All photos are official Coast Guard photos and are of the expected high quality that we are used to in their photos. Most include a typed one or two page history of the light station. Prints are silver prints, all 8” x 10” b/w and are clear and crisp, most taken from the air at close range. There are 57 photos total and include the following:
