The first book ever to be completely devoted to the history of Louisiana's lighthouses.
Two and a half years of research brings together the detailed history of these little known and in many cases long lost beacons. Did you know that the Capitol One Bank building (formerly the Hibernia Bank building) on Canal and Carondelet was once used as a lighthouse? There once where 35 lighthouses in and around the coast of Louisiana, with only a few of them still standing today. Most of Louisiana's lighthouses have been snuffed out, destroyed by storms, eaten away by erosion, or simply torn down but a few are still active aid to navigation. The book also includes history of Lighthouses, Illumination, Keepers, Lightships, etc.
