Picturesque Fisherman's Docks

Picturesque Fisherman's Docks | Postcard | Wisconsin Historical Society
Color photographic postcard of the fisherman's dock taken from the harbor walkway. White boats are moored on either side of the Ahnapee River as it flows into Lake Michigan. The red Algoma Pierhead Lighthouse is at the end of the northern pier. The first pierhead lighthouse was established in 1893 and replaced in 1908 by a cast-iron tower, which was mounted on top of a cylinder in 1932 to raise the focal point.
