More Gurnet

While browsing through the internet curious to learn more about Gurnet Light located in Duxbury - or is it Plymouth? - that's always kind of confused me, I found this awesome image of an old postcard credited to Huelse (?) on the Russ Rowlett and the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill website. The postcard depicts the lighthouse with twin towers. In my opinion in what was undoubtedly a poor design decision, the second tower was removed in 1924 leaving the building as it stands today - the nation's oldest active wooden light tower.
Borrowed from the UNC website, thank you!
