Lights of the Lakes

Lights of the Lakes - A Great Lakes Lighthouse Slideshow

Lights of the Lakes is an original narrated slideshow accompanied by music and sound effects. It consists of over 200 photographs, including striking portraits of over 60 different Great Lakes lighthouses. Other images include shipwrecks and historical subjects depicting iron and copper mining and lumbering activities in the 19th and early 20th centuries. The importance of these industries during this period necessitated the construction of many of the lights seen in the show, to help facilitate shipping of mineral and timber products to distant markets.

Phillip L. Block is a lifelong photographer, writer, and dedicated lighthouse enthusiast. He is now retired following a career in management, corporate training, and technical communications. For more information about Mr. Block and his work, visit his website.

This program is co-sponsored by the library and the Menasha Historical Society.
