Willard D. Miller is shown here at East Brother Lighthouse Station smoking his pipe; he has his arm on one of the wooden cabinets that he carved for a phonograph that he made. The words carved on the lid reads, “Music Hath Charm to Soothe the Savage Beast.” Behind him there appears to be some laundry hanging on a line. Also shown hanging on a hook on the wall is a spare lighthouse keeper’s hat. (Photo courtesy, Earle Miller.)
