Commentaires : These skates once belonged to the granddaughter of West Point Lighthouse keeper William MacDonald (keeper from 1875 to 1925). Her name was Helen MacDonald Dumville. This style of strap on skate was very popular at the turn of the 20th century and this manufacturer, The Samuel Winslow Skate, was a most popular American brand. An advertisement from 1911 claims that Winslow skates excel the foremost Canadian skates. The West Point Lighthouse is called "the first of the 2nd generation" of lighthouses on PEI. It was the first one built by the new Department of Marine (also called Department of Marine and Fisheries). West Point was the first of the square towers, and the highest at 20.6 m (67 feet 8 inches) from ground to vane. Built by the firm of Messers.Mugridge and Co. from Shediac, New Brunswick for $4,559.59, it consisted of a square tapered tower of frame construction set on stone foundations. It had a 1 ½ storey, gable-roofed house with a lean-to storage shed. There were only two keepers during the 88 years before the tower was electrified in 1963.
