In going through some old (pre-digital photography) albums, I came across this photo I took of the Sandy Point Lighthouse near Shelburne, Nova Scotia. It is located on the east side of the entrance to Shelburne Harbour on a concrete pier. It commenced operation in 1880 on a wooden pier which was later replaced by the concrete pier. It was manned until 1980 when it was automated. It was discontinued by the Coast Guard in 1996 and is now owned by the community of Sandy Point and serves as a tourist destination. The photo was taken in September 1998.
