Description:
Titled "Light-tower, near Cobourg" by W.H. Barlett made in 1839
Notes:
Midway between Port Hope and Cobourg there is a dangerous shoal called Gull Island, which is about two miles long, and about one mile from the shore. Gull Island Lighthouse is somewhat exaggerated, though the force of the wind and water has several times necessitated re-building or repairs to this lighthouse. Bartlett was a noted English artist. This is a photograph of the original.
