St. Augustine Lighthouse

St. Augustine, Florida

In 1824, the first lighthouse in Florida was built in St. Augustine on a square 52-foot-tall tower that had been built in 1737. Our image is of the second lighthouse, built between 1871 and 1874. It is 165 feet tall (the light's focal plane is 150 feet up and it's observation deck is 140 feet or 219 steps). That makes it the second tallest lighthouse in Florida (after Ponce de Leon Inlet Light at 175 ft) and seventh tallest in the United Stateslist.

This image, taken on the lighthouse grounds, is 85,246 pixels high by 62,637 pixels and spans around 88° by 75° of view. For a better close-up view of the full-size image, go to our page.

Although we can print to your specifications any size up to the above limits to the nearest 1/16" with any mat and moulding combinations, we presently have none of these in stock.


Although the resolution and sharpness of the image should allow for this, we would need to send an image this size somewhere else to get it printed. Our printer can print up to 44" across, meaning that practically, we can print an image on paper up to 431/2". On canvas, we could only go to 371/2", to make room for wrapping the edges. Thus our in-house size limit for this image is shown above in parentheses.
