Shortenly Mitko has uploaded a picture of this light.I have found a new situation! I believe also Peter has not found this light in 2022 ! Most web sites still mention this light, but it exist never more!
The site is identified! It's definitely Lighthouse Point in New Haven, Connecticut, and confirmed with the New Haven Museum/Historical Society. The lighthouse was erected in 1804 and became inactive in 1877 but left standing and is today a protected national historic landmark. There is an old carousel on the beach but the bath houses are no longer there. I'm now hoping that there will be a way to date the painting. It's undated but it looks like other works by Blenner from the early 1890s. I should be receiving some more information from the museum. Thanks again! Lisa
but other images don't match up all that well. I'll send an inquiry to the New Haven Historical Society. The lighthouse was built in 1804 and became inactive in 1877, but still exists in Lighthouse Point Park
New London looks too rocky and may have been too remote for that kind of tourist activity. Will keep the site posted. Lisa
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:
