Lost in Time but Never Forgotten by LenseMan Lost in Time but Never Forgotten by LenseMan
Photograph of two World War II lookout towers along the Atlantic coast of Lewes, DE (Gordan Pond Wildlife Area). These towers (Tower No. 5 and Tower No. 6) are two of 15 built between Wildwood, NJ and Bethany Beach, DE in the 1940s as a first line of defense against invading German ships and submarines. They are no longer in use but locals and tourists respect and enjoy their presence on the beaches. These towers are unique to this area and give the beaches character.

These towers were part of a long-baseline rangefinder that was used to direct a pair of sixteen-inch guns in a bunker on Cape Henlopen, outside Lewes.  When I was stationed their in 1969, the guns were long gone and the bunker housed a naval radio station.
