Old Point Loma Lighthouse - Another View




This is another view of the Old Point Loma Lighthouse. The site was selected by the U.S. Coastal Survey in 1851. At dusk on November 15, 1855, the oil lamp was lit for the first time. Unfortunately, it was found that fog and low clouds often obscured theh light. Finally, on March 23, 1891, the light was extinguished for the last time.
