Vintage post card image of the 1890 Eastern Point Lighthouse in Gloucester, Massachusetts where Carl Hill served as the lighthouse keeper from 1934 to 1945. During World War II, a number of extra Coast Guardsmen were assigned to Eastern Point Lighthouse to patrol the shoreline. The men loved to visit with keeper Hill and hear his stories of lighthouse keeping and rescues. (Lighthouse Digest archives.)
