A Lighthouse of France

FR 15 Boulogne Digue Sud (Digue Carnot)
latitude 50° 44' 26.4" N
longitude 1° 34' 3" E

The initial light here, erected in 1887, consisted of a beacon on top of a gas tank. It was blown off in a storm a few months later and replaced by a more solid structure. The current lighthouse, built in 1968, was the first automated, remote-controlled light in France. ARLHS # FRA-204 (A 1170)
