More Point Lookout CG photos & Long Beach Island Landmark Association Meeting today @ 2pm

An update from the Point Lookout Coast Guard photos that I recently posted.These were sent in by a reader named Doug.

Here are two additional photos showing the U.S. Lifesaving Station workers and another shot of the Coast Guard Station in Point Lookout. The Life Saving Service predated the Coast Guard and was in existence from 1848 to 1915. The Coast Guard came into existence when the Revenue Service and USLS joined to form the Coast Guard in 1915.

The Point Lookout USCG Station, c. 1909, WWII & Modern Day [Updated with Life Saving Service photos]

Last week I posted a photo of the Long Beach US Coast Guard Station. Now it’s Point Lookouts turn. Sent in by a reader named Kayo:

unnamed-1(This is the same building c. WWII.  Note the considerable renovations)

unnamed-2This is the present day Pt. Lookout Community Church (Photo credit: Kayo). Interestingly, this building was in place when street grid was laid down.  It encroaches on the sidewalk and is out of alignment with every other building in PL.  They were there first.  The coast Guard rescue boats were kept in a bayfront facility that now houses the PLFD rescue unit.  – Kayo
