13186b. (mounted photo) Light House at Pulaski, New York c.1910. Large, clear mounted photo shows great detail of the striking stone keeper’s dwelling with the rooftop lantern room at Pulaski, New York. The Selkirk Lighthouse sits at the mouth of the Salmon River. Originally called the Salmon River Light Station, the lighthouse was constructed in 1838 in anticipation of the growth of Port Ontario, but the building of the railroad further inland and the location of the new Erie Canal 20 miles inland, doomed this area to relative obscurity. The light was deactivated in 1858. Note the “birdcage” lantern room still remaining today, which predates more modern 1870’s lantern rooms that could house a modern Fresnel lens. This is one of only about three such early 1830’s lantern rooms remaining to this day. Image measures 4 ½” x 6 ½” on 5” x 8” mount. Clear and close, this is an unusually detailed image. Clean, clear. (VG+). $78.
