Architectural drawing of Graves Light shows how the tower was built atop a stump of the ledge, and the internal facilities: two cisterns, five levels within the granite walls, and two levels above. Note the dual round lenses within the giant first-order Fresnel Lens that gave Graves its distinctive two-flash pattern. (Photo courtesy of the Massachusetts Historical Society)
