Abstract/Description:
The Sanibel lighthouse complex at the eastern end of the island, looking north into San Carlos Bay. The keeper and assistant keeper and their families lived in the two mirror-image quarters, and the closer (western) building was used as the office for the headquarters of the J. N. "D'ing" Darling National Wildlife Refuge until their visitor center was built in 1979. The oil house, built in 1884 and used for storage of kerosene oil for the light in the early years, is visible left (north) of the light. Parallel ditches dug for mosquito control in the late 1950s are evident at the lower end of the photo.
