Restoration Photos for 23 July 2011

This week Donna Gorrell provides photos taken by her friend Dan around the island, including views of work inside the Keeper's house! It is evident that a lot of work has gone into carefully replacing the crumbling plaster on the walls, and putting up new trim around the doors and windows, while retaining original features like the fireplaces. It is also clear that a lot of work is left to be done!

Thanks Donna and Dan for the "inside" view!

Restoration Photos for 1 July 2011

Donna Gorrell has provided us with a glimpse of progress at the island so far this summer.  Notable changes include historically accurate windows on the upper level!

The tower continues to deteriorate and bidding is scheduled to be opened for the restoration of it this month.

Thank you to Donna Gorrell for sharing these photos!
