Harbor (Sand) Beach Lighthouse by Margaret M. Glinke

This man-made harbor was a major port of refuge in its heyday. A massive breakwater extension was constructed and many lake boats took shelter here. Dozens of shipwrecks are in the area, evidence of failed attempt to seek safety. It is located on the end of the breakwater pier and is nearly inaccessible but can be photographed from the park pier nearby.

The conical brick structure is encased in cast iron plates, 22' at the base and 18' at the parapet. The lens plane, 54' above the water is an active, automatic light almost identical to the Detroit River Lighthouse. (1885)

Original hand colored in double mat in a whitewashed oak frame
16" x 20," $250.00.
Also available as a print.

The quality of the Margaret Glinke's fine art is much higher than we can show within limits of this web site. Slight tonal changes and blurring around the areas of strong contrast are a result of the JPEG compression process, and are not part of the high quality originals.
