These are pictures inside the original Fresnel lenses that lit the Gay Head Lighthouse  from 1856 until the 1950’s when it was automated.  You can see these lenses, which are made up of over 1000 prisms at the Martha’s Vineyard Museum in Edgartown.

I'm married, I have two daughters and two grandchildren and they all love MV. Enjoy my MV blog and contact me if I can answer any questions. This blog started out as strictly about Martha's Vineyard but over the years I've branched out to include other obsessions and interests. I enjoy photography and like sharing my photos here as well. Hope you enjoy :)
