Another Chance lighthouse optic, this time a 4th order lens assembly. At just 26-in high (66cm) tall, it was designed for a harbour (Granton) for guiding ships in. The red sleeve indicates it was a port-side light, as opposed to starboard (green).

A mere 36,000. A great pity: they only have one and I wanted a pair...  ;D

I grew up in Granton!
(an area of Edinburgh)
Cheers, Sue (M)

If all is not lost, then where the heck is it?
