The temporary tower is shown here in October 1901 after its 3rd order Fresnel lens had been removed from its lantern and the new 1st order Fresnel lens had been installed in the lantern of the Highland Light. Look closely and you will notice that the drapes or shades were drawn in the lantern. (Courtesy Kenrick A. Claflin & Son Nautical Antiques.)
