Pomham Rocks Lighthouse 1971

 This is a picture of Dennis’ bedroom at the lighthouse. It was the one next to the bathroom. All the floors were covered with 9” tiles. You can just see the ceiling light which is still in place today. At night one of those stationed at the light would bring up the telephone (black dial type with a very long cord) next to the beds. They would get calls from the Coast Guard Group Wood Hole with “Message Traffic”. Usually nothing that couldnt wait until morning, but nighttime was when the Radioman at Group Woods Hole weren’t as busy and had time to call all the lighthouses with “messages".
