Booksigning with Theodore Panayotoff & Michael Pittavino,
authors of Lighthouses & Life Saving at Oswego
Theodore J. Panayotoff is the former chairman of the Oswego Lighthouse Development Committee, and Michael R. Pittavino serves as curator of the H. Lee White Maritime Museum. Together, they present both familiar and never-before-seen images of Oswego's waterfront that were carefully selected from hundreds of photographs in the archives of the H. Lee White Maritime Museum and other sources near and far. Collectively, they paint a picture of Oswego that is most assuredly not lost to history and one that will forever remain deeply rooted in local culture. Copies of Lighthouses & Life Saving at Oswego will be available on June 18th - Order your copy today!
The oldest freshwater port in the United States is nestled firmly into the southeastern shore of Lake Ontario at Oswego, New York. Since 1822, four lighthouses have guided the mariner's safe passage to shore, and just as those lighthouses stood watch, so did the men and women who manned them.
