1925View.jpg
Exterior of Lighthouse, Looking South104 viewsThis photograph is a rare find and shows the lighthouse in 1927, just 2 years before the 1927 remodel. The photos are part of a larger photo album documenting a 1925 trip to southern Maryland by Julia Dent Best and Alfred Sellman Best. Julia Best was a 1919 graduate of what was then called St. Mary's Female Seminary. The album was donated to St. Mary’s College of Maryland Archives by Julia Best's great-niece, Virginia Arndt, of Solomons.

Fog Bell 1910234 viewsThe caption on the back of the picture is: "Point Lookout Fog Bell Tower, picture taken 1910. On left is Catherine Marie Ardseer [sic] (b. 5-9-1891) and on right is Rose Jeanette Ardseer [sic] (b. 4-22-1890); relatives of lighthouse keeper."

Note: The Ardeeser's were relatives of lighthouse keeper William Yeatman, who died in 1908. Perhaps the date of the picture is incorrect OR the young women returned to the lighthouse for a visit during William Moody's second term.
