John Gillan Photography
The Lighthouse is the signature image of the Places In Time collection and the cover image of the book. This collection of work is one of the most sensitive and revealing records ever assembled of the richly historic architecture and landscapes of Dade County. " This is historic Miami at its best. " Charleton Tebeau.
"Our ninety-five foot-tall Cape Florida Lighthouse, the oldest element of Dade County's built environment, is a most intriguing four hundred eighty-one-year-old historic numbers game: In 1513, Juan Ponce de Leon visited the site: in 1825 the brick tower was completed; in 1836, there was a Seminole Indian attack; in 1971, it was listed on the National Register; in 1978, the beacon was relighted after a hundred years; and in 1988, Dade Heritage Trust spearheaded the lighthouse's restoration."
