26184. (photo) Eaton’s Neck Lighthouse with Keeper Arthur Jensen, LI. NY. c.1900. Large photo on original mat measures 7 ½” x 9 ¼” and provides a fine, early view of the light station at Eaton’s Neck with the keeper posing in front of the light tower. Eaton’s Neck light station was located on the east side of Huntington Bay entrance. The lighthouse was 73 feet high and displayed a fixed white Third-Order light. The original octagonal sandstone tower is shown, built on a foundation constructed was constructed in 1798 on 10 acres of land. In 1868 the station was renovated, the wooden steps replaced with iron steps and landings, walls lined with bricks, the keeper’s quarters expanded and a steam fog signal installed. Today the station continues as an active Coast Guard navigational aid. This photo appears to be from an old photo album and retains the canvas hinge strip on the left edge. The image shows a light tower and keeper’s dwelling keeper Jensen and another gentleman with his dog and hillside. Written in ink on bottom is “Eaton’s Neck Light, L.I.” The image itself is in very good condition, edges of mat page with small chips and moisture staining to extreme edge of page, but does not affect photo at all. Page size 10 ½” x 14”. A descendent of Keeper Jensen wrote to advise that the keeper in this image was her father, Keeper Arthur Oskar Johan Jensen. Jensen was keeper at Eaton’s Neck from 1917 until 1942. Superb early view. (VG-). $185 net.
