Farol da Palmeirinhas, Angola

Thanks to Octavio Perez for these rare photos of the Farol de Palmeirinhas southwest of Luanda, Angola. At left is the ruined base of the former lighthouse; a 1969 photo of that lighthouse by Ivo Cardoso is available. At left is the modern lighthouse, a solar-powered steel skeletal tower.
