Langley Deagle is renowned for many different types of artwork. However, one of his largest and most impressive endeavors is the set of works dedicated to pen and ink renditions of the old lighthouses of the Chesapeake Bay. Most of these lighthouses are no longer standing and all his work is pieced together from historic photos and hours of research. Once he finishes his research, he produces a gorgeous final piece showing the lighthouse in its former glory. Now, these pieces are available as greeting cards, and you can buy them individually (card and envelope) or as a set. Share the joy of these works with others by sending them a beautiful card in the mail.
This card offering is for the “Pages Rock Lighthouse, which was built in 1893 in the York River off of Blundering Point, Virginia. This was about 5 miles north of the town of Yorktown, Virginia. It was a hexagonal screwpile lighthouse with a fourth order Fresnel lens and the tower was constructed on the roof. The lighthouse was assembled at the Lazaretto Depot in Maryland. It was automated in 1960 and deactivated and removed in 1967., when it was replaced with an automated steel skeletal tower built on the original foundation.” https://cheslights.org/york-spit/
