BellTower1910.jpg
Fog Bell 1910660 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.
