Trinity Lamp

Also referred to as Three Sisters.

Its purpose was to help sea captains nagivate in to Saint John Harbour at night. When they could see each red light individually, it was okay to navigate straight into the harbour. If one or two were covered, they had to alter their course. Visible three miles seaward, located at the end of Prince William Street, Saint John, New Brunswick.

  2. Because they’re three, I guess …and that it’s positioned in a straight line with the Trinity Church [trefaldighet].
    They didn’t turn …the red part is pointing out to sea šŸ™‚
