Wood End Light

March 14, 2019

The last of my re-edits of old slides, this is Wood End Light in Provincetown, MA. Sitting on flat sands near the tip of Cape Cod, it is a brick structure 39 ft. high. It is identical to Long Point Light, which sits even closer to the tip. One of my earliest photo journeys, I walked the 1.75 miles to the lighthouse, about 1 mile of that across a stone breakwater.

Despite being taken in 1984, little has changed in regards to how Wood End looks. The keeper’s house was razed in 1961 when the light was automated, leaving only the light and the oil shed.
