Lighthouse in Oakville, Ontario (circa 1960)

Selected for Google Maps and Google Earth

Oakville New Lighthouse. At the entrance to the harbour in on 16 Mile Creek. In the 1960's this automated Lighthouse was placed at the end of the pier, replacing a 1889 octagonal wooden lighthouse.

The old signal tower is restored and located on the grounds of the Oakville Yacht Club!. There is a photo of it in my gallery.

Well done! Is that a sculpture or a bollard? (A sculptural bollard, perhaps?) Somebody a long timer ago got me to use a "bollards" tag, but it's one of those Panoramio things: there's also a "bollard" tag, and never the twain shall meet.

Das ist eine sehr interessante Skulptur im Vordergrund. Welche Assoziationen bekommt man, wenn man die Lady in der Mitte des Bildes sieht? Ist das anstößig? ;-) Egal, die Farben sind super. Ich mag dieses Bild sehr gerne... L 100!!!

Grüße aus Deutschland. Harry.
