Lighthouse identification / Re: 1940s lighthouse ID
January 23, 2023, 09:09:41 AM
Hi Pete! I did some research on this topic. There are number of "dunce cap" lighthouses in Japan (i.e.
Hiroshima, Fujisawa, Hakata Kō - most of them were build after 1950s)
I would say likely this picture is Yokohama South Outer Breakwater (built 1939).
Here are some other pictures of it:
LH Japan

It has slightly different configuration of windows (but this could be due to tower reconstruction) but general shape of the tower, breakwater and square building nearby - everything is very similar. As far as I've found in internet -  American troops were landed in Yokohama after surrender of Japan so this fits to story as well.
Agreed! It seems this could be different datums...

I bet this is something in Asia, Korea or Japan maybe. Any kind of information about picture could help!
Another option is Strumble Head which also has iron bridge connecting to mainland, but i think South Stack is much better candidate
South Stack in Wales looks similar - at least there is a bridge connecting the island with mainland
Any additional information available? I.e. age or region?

Thanks, this is very interesting information.
Quality really poor. I can't understand even shape of the tower, if it is rectangular or round :(
It seems it was somewhere by the beach, such towers often were destroyed due to erosion.
Will try to search something similar...
