Could everyone write one simple essay about something that once happened in Saltaire…that they saw or were a part of…and put it on one big website? Somebody should collect a lot of stories before we all forget. Otherwise it is like a line in “On The Beach” : The history of the war that now would never be written.” -(JO'H)

I love the picture of the lighthouse with the biplanes flying around it. Reminds one of King Kong fighting off the biplanes as he hung from the top of the Empie State Building. What would be appropriate here is Robert Moses hanging from the Lighthouse as biplanes strafe him

Robert Moses Hanging from the lighthouse?

Jac d'vici?.

The only person really known to hang from the Lighthouse is Capt. Frank Mina. When they relit the Fire Island Light Frank hoisted the lens up the outside to the top: with Frank hanging on like Fay Wray.
