AbstractHistoryArchive Description

'The Hammerhead Light was a tower of stone. Sometimes it stood gleaming in the sunlight on the high headland of Hammerhead Rock, like a great white monument, sometimes it loomed out of the black storm clouds. To Tessa Noble and the people of Snapper Bay, the Hammerhead Light was more than a lighthouse, but a symbol of safety.'
