We caught sight of this photo in the Historic American Buildings Survey (HABS) documentation for the Cape Saint George Lighthouse, Cape St. George,Apalachicola, Franklin County, Florida.

This 1852 lighthouse caught our eye because it’s at such an angle! (275 degrees off north).  This November 1998 photo shows the lighthouse soon after Hurricane Georges hit it; further damaged by erosion and pounding waves, it  finally toppled on October 21, 2005.
