IMAGES FROM THE END OF AN ERA.
It contains images of over 220 Australian lights as they were at the end of the twentieth century in 500 brilliant photographs. The development of the lighthouse in Australia over almost two hundred years is described by John Ibbotson as he takes us round the coasts on his pictorial voyage.
All the current and past lights are described, almost all with stunning photographs. Each light’s history and status is provided in clear and concise terms. A list of the many lighthouse museums round the Australian coast is a great boon to nautical history enthusiasts.
Combined with concise, informative captions, 12 detailed location maps, a history of lighthouses, a chronological list of over 400 Australian lights and a section on lighthouse museums the book provides something for everybody who has an interest in lighthouses or the sea.
