Charter Fishing, Lake Superior, Rock of Ages Lighthouse poster print by Graphic Designer Rich Sladek.

Situated five miles off the northwest tip of Isle Royale in Lake Superior, Rock of Ages Lighthouse stands as one of the tallest and most powerful beacons on the Great Lakes. The tower was completed in 1908, built with a steel frame and brick masonry. It rests on a 50’ diameter steel crib filled with concrete and anchored to a narrow rock outcropping. The Rock of Ages Lighthouse had claimed two sizeable ships, the Cumberland (1877) and the Henry Chisholm (1898), and posed a threat to many other large vessels along the active shipping lane between Port Arthur (Thunder Bay) and Duluth. The Rock of Ages Lighthouse is one of the most unique beacons on the Great Lakes. It is one of four lighthouses that have served Isle Royale and its immediate vicinity. Although shipping has decreased between Port Arthur and Duluth, the reef remains a focal point for small fishing vessels and divers exploring the wrecks below.

The lighthouse stands 130 feet and is the tallest lighthouse on the Great Lakes. The tower itself is brick that is dull gray in color. The Rock of Ages Lighthouse first went into service in 1910 as ship traffic to and from Duluth, Minnesota increased. It warns mariners of a large strip of exposed rock a few miles west of Isle Royale.

Inspired by vintage-style travel/national park posters of the 1930’s, Rich is working on a collection of original graphic poster art illustration showcasing current and historical Lake Minnetonka and beyond.
