One of the main features along the waterfront of the village of Port Credit is the red and white lighthouse. The original Port Credit lighthouse was in service from 1882 until 1918. Unfortunately, in 1936 the lighthouse was destroyed by fire. This current lighthouse is a replica of the original and was constructed in 1991. It now acts as the symbol of Port Credit and is home to the local BIA and tourism bureau. And the snow is quickly melting.

    Happy REDnesday,

  5. I really like this red photo–the colors are nicely done!

    Reflection for watery Wednesday.

  9. I do so love lighthouses…the history. With the advantages of sonar and computers these days, they’re becoming a thing of the past…your photo share is super!

  10. this is a handsome lighthouse…the red trim is perfect.

  11. Wow– I’d love to live there!! Wonder if the tourism board would consider relocating!

  12. A very interesting and attractive way to preserve history; great location for the replica. We saw a bunch of lighthouses last summer on our roadtrip and there are quite a few near where we lived in Oregon/ Although seldom used or needed for their original purpose, they remain iconic landmarks and I love seeing them. Glad they didn’t let this one pass from memory after it burned.

  13. Very interesting photo. I have been collecting pictures of lighthouses for years. Finally got to visit one after I met the Old Salt and visited California.
