The Back Story:

Boca Grande Rear Range

This hexagonal tower was built in 1881 by the Phoenix Iron Company of Trenton, New Jersey, and put into service at a station just north of Lewes, Delaware, where it served as the Delaware Breakwater Rear Range Light. Because of its prefabricated structure, it was easy to disassemble and eventually transported to the currently location, Gasparilla Island, in 1927. The Boca Grande Rear Range Light is still functional, guiding vessels safely through the Boca Grande Channel into the safe confines of Charlotte Harbor.

 About the Artist: Paul M. Bradley Jr., an architect by profession, began drawing lighthouses after a New England vacation sparked his interest in the structures. His drawings appear quarterly in the Keeper's Log, a publication of the U.S. Lighthouse Society (www.uslhs.org).
