11309. (negative) Winter Quarter Lightship No. 107 c.1950’s. Original large-format (1 ¾” x 2 ¼”) acetate negative of the Winter Quarter lightship on station, taken from the air. The lightship was built by Bath Iron Works of Bath, ME in 1923, and its first station was Cape Lookout Shoals, NC, where it served from 1924 to 1933. The lightship’s next assignment was at Winter Quarter Shoal, VA, located several miles offshore from Assateague Island. The lightship served to mark the northern approach to Chesapeake Bay in addition to warning mariners of the shoal. With the exception of World War II, the lightship remained on Winter Quarter station through 1960 when it was replaced by a lighted bell buoy. Clear, would provide a clear image. (VG+). $12.
