I didn't find it, maybe removed?

Lighthouse identification / Re: Norway?

Hi! This is Bastoy lighthouse
See here
My pictures are some old. So i will update the description
Great to hear! Good luck in further research!
Lisa, let me know results. We can continue search if there will be negative answer.
It's always tricky to identify lighthouse on the old painting due to it could be demolished, rebuild or painter could be not very accurate in the details of construction. Anyway let's assume that it still exist and looks relatively same.
Before we move to Europe i would like to check have you considered following options in US:

Connecticut / Five Mile Point lighthouse

Connecticut / New London Harbor lighthouse

New Jersey / Sandy Hook lighthouse

All of them are:
  • Tall but relatively thick comparing to classic towers
  • Within described age
  • Have relatively small lantern on top comparing to tower width
  • Round or octagonal conic form
  • Except Sandy Hill have a nice beach nearby where the painter could work

So what do you think?

PS I also find few places called Lido Beach - one in NY, one in FL but there is no (and seems never been) lighthouses nearby.
Interesting topic! Need to do some research then revert.
43.715622, -87.699514 should work
Full USCG List is here
You need vol 7 for Great Lakes, see page 186 - seems this is GENERATING STATION SOUTH INTAKE CRIB LIGHT 6
