Artist's Description

Situated on the end of a rocky spit of land known as Yarmouth Bar,of which the tip is Cape Fourchu, the lighthouse is at the extreme south-west end of Nova Scotia, Canada. The Atlantic Ocean beyond brews up a vast mixture of weather, much of it gales or hurricane strength.Though this was a lovely evening, the flags are straight out in the wind. Over the horizon in a straight line, the nearest land is South America.
The lighthouse guards the entrance to Yarmouth harbour, which at 1870 was the second largest port of registry for shipping in all of Canada.

The original lighthouse was built in 1840, and the present one in 1962. It’s often called the “apple-core” because of the shape of the concrete tower, which was the prototype for this kind of light tower in the world. It’s only 5 feet in diameter,greatly decreasing wind resistance, and a spiral staircase inside allows access to the top. No visitors are permitted inside. The light throws a one-million candlepower beam which can be seen over 30 nautical miles out to sea.
In 2003 the lighthouse was designated a Registered Heritage property by the Province of Nova Scotia.
