This original image titled ‘Gathering Oysters by Steam off the New Lighthouse in New Haven, Connecticut is from Frank Leslie’s Illustrated Newspaper on December 13, 1879. The lighthouse is supposed to be an image of the Southwest Ledge Lighthouse in New Haven Connecticut, which is also known as the New Haven Harbor Lighthouse. Apparently the artist never visited the site and drew the lighthouse from a written description and very few people of the time would never have known that this is not what the lighthouse actually looked like. This great historic item would look great framed and it would be an outstanding addition to any lighthouse or maritime collection. Approximately 10.5″ x 16″
