The Gibraltar Point Lighthouse is located on the Toronto Islands in Toronto, Ontario. Built in 1808, it is the oldest existing lighthouse on the Great Lakes, and one of Toronto's oldest buildings. The lighthouse is perhaps best known for the demise of its first keeper, German-born John Paul Radelmüller, whose 1815 murder forms the basis of Toronto’s most enduring ghost story. Recent research has verified many aspects of the traditional tale of his death and identified the soldiers charged with but ultimately acquitted of the crime. 

This piece is on 140 lb watercolor paper mounted on birch plywood panel. It will need a frame for display.
