Description
From Portland Breakwater Lighthouse in Maine to Cape St. George Lighthouse in Florida, from Moloka'i Light Station in Hawaii to Cape Spencer Lighthouse in Alaska, this book surveys 18 outstanding lighthouses through more than 90 color and black and white photos. Here too, you'll find 50 architectural plans and drawings that reveal such unique structural details as the pilings that allow the Port Mahon Lighthouse in Delaware to hover over the water, as well as maps and GPS coordinates. These architectural marvels have been extensively documented by the Historic American Building Survey (HABS) and the Historic American Engineering Record (HAER). Revealing the sophisticated designs and advanced structural features of these buildings, the book is detailed enough to satisfy the modeler, artist, or builder, as well as the enthusiast.
