13178.(snapshot photo) Point Cabrillo Lighthouse, California c.1910. Close clear photo shows great detail of the lovely Victorian light tower and keeper’s dwelling as visitors pose on the gallery. View also includes the cisterns, out buildings and more. In 1873, Point Cabrillo was surveyed as a potential site for a lighthouse and by 1904, the Lighthouse Service recommended that a lighthouse be placed at the point. The lighthouse was constructed by the Lindgren Company beginning in 1908, and began operation in 1909. Its first light keeper was Wilhelm Baumgartner, who was probably the keeper when this photo was snapped. Clear, close, light soiling. (VG-). $44.
