This photograph, dated in 1954, showing a man, by the name of C. Siegle, working on the lens at New Hampshire’s Portsmouth Harbor Lighthouse was found in the Coast Guard’s archives. We’d like to know the first name of Mr. Siegle and more about his career. It appears that he was doing something to the lens, perhaps before it was installed in the tower. If anyone can help us with additional information please e-mail us at editor@LighthouseDigest.com or write to Editor, Lighthouse Digest, P.O. Box 250, East Machias, ME 04630.
