Gratiot Light: 1901

Gratiot Light: 1901

Circa 1901. "Gratiot Light, Port Huron, Michigan." A great lighthouse on a Great Lake! 8x10 inch glass negative, Detroit Publishing Company. View full size.

 

Scratch It

Rhymes with Gratiot, at least in Wisconsin.

Beacon for breakfast

Still open for tours, both in reality and here on Street View.

Just upstream from the Blue Water Bridge between Michigan and Canada.

Bucolic

Heavy woolens, aside it looks like a beautiful summer day on the shores of Lake Huron. Perhaps that steamer on the horizon is taking patrons to Mackinac Island where they can enjoy the sunsets from the huge porch of the Grand Hotel.

Gratiot

Pronounced in Michigan as GRA-shut, with the 'a' as in grass.

What a tease

To stand so close to the water... and have to keep your shoes and stockings on.
