Lighthouse Gallery Wrapped Canvas Prints

Lighthouse Gallery Wrapped Canvas Prints Lighthouses are built as towers with lights to warn sailors, especially at night or in a storm, to straighten their position so they donot hit reefs and rocks on shore. Lighthouses mark dangerous coastlines, hazardous shoals, reefs, safe entries to harbors, and can also assist in aerial navigation. Once widely used, the number of operational lighthouses has declined due to the expense of maintenance and use of electronic navigational systems. In Australia, lighthouses are built in harbors, on islands, coral reefs and beaches. A lighthouse is a tower, building, or other type of structure designed to emit light from a system of lamps and lenses and used as a navigational aid for maritime pilots at sea or on inland waterways. Many of the earliest Australian lighthouses were built in direct response to shipwrecks in the treacherous waters in the Southern Ocean and the Tasman Sea part of which was known as the shipwreck coast. Lighthouses became critical aids in preventing shipwrecks. Lighthouse design and construction had to be adapted to the particular environments in which they were built - some of which are the most rugged and remote coasts of Australia. The modern era of lighthouses began at the turn of the 18th century, as lighthouse construction boomed in lockstep with burgeoning levels of transatlantic commerce. Advances in structural engineering and new and efficient lighting equipment allowed for the creation of larger and more powerful lighthouses, including ones exposed to the sea. The absence of suitable building materials meant that lighthouses were often built with other suitable materials that were prefabricated and shipped to the site.
