Fortune Head Ecological Reserve

The photos on this page were taken when Fortune Head was still a manuallly-operated light station, with two houses for the lightkeepers, a light, and a 'whistle house' that housed the diesel engines.



Above: the Lightkeeper's house. Below: the Whistle House.
Above left: Inside the Whistle House, showing one of the engines. The other three
photos show the apparatus for hauling fuel drums up from the shoreline to the station above.
