The U.S. Lighthouse Service lighthouse tender Heather. Look closely and you will see a large brass lighthouse on the bow of the ship. Commissioned on June 10, 1903, the Heather was transferred to the War Department in 1940 and subsequently sold to a foreign buyer. (Photo courtesy Columbia River Maritime Museum.)
