Some of the clues to the faithful reconstruction of the interior of Graves Light have come from the bottom of Boston Harbor.
Chris, a diver from Boston Scuba, found yet another artifact offshore at The Graves.
Pictured in his hand is a heavily weathered porcelain door knob.
We had already restored the surviving interior door and built two copies on Nantucket, but we didn’t know what the original knobs looked like. Now we do.
So we found four antique sets of knobs at a local wrecking company. Voila! The doors are now complete. Thanks, Chris!
