Before and After

Bristol Ferry Light, original

A part of yesterday’s photo trip was down to Bristol Rhode Island. After my previous trip to Bristol, and doing research about the town. I found information on an old historic lighthouse, Bristol Ferry Light. Its location is on the shores of Narragansett Bay at Bristol point, the northern land point of Mount Hope Bay, and is located at the base of the Mount Hope Bridge. The lighthouse was built in 1855 and was discontinued in 1927 when the Mount Hope Bridge was built. Before the bridge was built, there was a ferry that operated between Bristol and Aquidneck Island. Presently it is a private residence.

Because the number of steps I needed clean up the wires. The wires are in front of the lighthouse, I am just going to show before and after images.

Next set of images, looking up At the Mount Hope Bridge. Because of the sunrays that were present, I did not change the sky.

Looking between the Mount Hope Bridge and the Bristol Ferry Light, you could see the Hog Island Shoal Lighthouse. This light was built in 1901 and is a spark plug lighthouse on a Shoal off of hog Island. It stands at the entrance to Mount Hope Bay. It replaced a lightship and was the last lighthouse established in Rhode Island.
