The Swallowtail Lighthouse on Grand Manan Island. This lighthouse greets all those arriving to Grand Manan by ferry. It opened on July 7, 1860, after a series of shipwrecks on the north coast of Grand Manan. In one wreck, the 1,0009 ton ‘Lord Ashburton’ sunk during a midnight gale, taking the lives of 21 crewmen. For the past 150 years the lighthouse has guided sailors, and been an iconic emblem of Grand Manan. Photo by William Drumm.
