28105. (photo lot) Abandoned Lightship ?.

28105. (photo lot) Abandoned Lightship ?. Superb lot of six b/w photographs shows great detail of an abandoned British light vessel moored high and dry on the beach. Vessel has a hull entirely of wood, with the tall central mast and large lantern still intact. Photos provide great detail of the lantern and apparatus, hull, deck, rudder and more. Vessel may be abandoned, or may be undergoing repairs, its fate is not clear. Would guess images to be c.1930-1950.Nice lot. (VG+). $144.
