Years ago when I was scanning my collection of colour slides I found that apart from the ones of ships that most interested me, I also had unknowingly collected a small number of photos of lighthouses.I looked around on the web to see if there was any particular interest in them and found that there was. Russ Rowlett at the University of North Carolina had and still has a great site covering  lighthouses from around the world. He was happy to have copies of my pictures because having been taken almost 50 years ago, they were of historical interest. I found more interest in Europe too.

Russ's site is well worth a very long look if lighthouses take your fancy.

I'll sort out some pictures for you.

Best Regards

David

Hi David!

Yes, i know Russ site very well, this is great project, we often exchange the information and photos especially rare. But Russ site doesn't contain of really many photos, mostly links to another resourses and it's a big problem to keep such links collection up-to-date, since many sites opening and closing all the time. Anyway if you can send me some pictures - this would be great, you can use e-mail in my profile or else anykei at gmail.com.

Regards,
Dmitry

Hi Jim!
Hans is one of the most active contributors of the site.


Sad to confirm that A. J. de Graaf (also known by his shorter name Hans) passed away this August 2016

People who well knew him are saying:
He was a good and generous person and a humanitarian.

Hans de Graaf was also an active member of this esteemed website Shipspotting.com where he posted his 1626 photographs.

R.I.P


This information is submitted with much sorrow, Hans was almost my "neighbour",
