Balache Point Range Light, near the Canso Causeway c. 1995

This photo is of the Rear Range Light, which is the only building  of the two range lights which is still standing. The Front Range Light, established in 1963, was replaced by a skeleton tower in 1991. We do not have an image of the earlier tapered square wood tower, white, with a red stripe and red lantern, so there is no link to it.
