Photographer's Note

The South Haven South Pierhead Light is a lighthouse in Michigan at the entrance to the Black River on Lake Michigan. The station was lit in 1872 and is still operational.

The U.S. Lighthouse Service elected to tear down the wooden lighthouse and replace it with cast iron tower. On October 6, 1903 ten workers arrived on the USLHS tender Hyacinth and began the project. It took a little more than a month to complete. In 1913 the location was deemed unsatisfactory and the cast iron lighthouse was moved 425 feet (130m) to the end of the pier.

The catwalk is orginal and still links the tower to shore.
