27303. Wardius, Barb and Ken. WIND POINT LIGHTHOUSE. Arcadia. 2007

27303. Wardius, Barb and Ken. WIND POINT LIGHTHOUSE. Arcadia Publishing. 2007. 128 p. Soft wraps. Several lighthouses have called Racine home, but none is more synonymous with the nautical heritage of the “Belle City” than Wind Point. Always a beehive of activity, the Wind Point Lighthouse is one of the larger lighthouse complexes on the Great Lakes, and a hardworking keeper, two assistants, and their families made their livelihood here. For over 125 years, the tall stately tower has faithfully stood guard, shining its bright beam out over Lake Michigan nightly. Countless mariners relied on the Wind Point Lighthouse, along with a booming trademark foghorn for safe passage. Today the Wind Point Lighthouse is the most well-known symbol of Racine and is a success story among Great Lakes lights. The Wardiuses’ interest in lighthouses began nearly 30 years ago and today, their prints and photos carry the island’s history for future generations. Now they have put the rich lighthouse history into a book, filled with more than 200 archival photographs of the light, keepers and their families, equipment, everyday routines and more. Rare station and crew images are especially noteworthy. (M). $19.99.
