South African Lighthouse No. 14
"if you're thinkin' of being my baby
it don't matter if you're black or white"
The Port Shepstone lighthouse is actually not the original structure. In 1895, when Port Shepstone was just a harbour, a ship's masthead lantern was hung from a ladder-like structure to serve as a beacon to seafarers travelling around that part of our national coastline.
On 10 March 1905 the lighthouse was officially commissioned and developed from a signal station, but in 1906 the new, current, tower structure was erected and painted black and white.
That's checkmate to storms using our coastline to wreak havoc on ships, I guess.
