Water Planet E-Cards!
Michigan City East Pier Light was constructed in 1904 after the pier's extension was completed. The
smaller breakwater light in the photograph was built later in 1911. The structure was framed in
steel, lined with brick, and exterior encased in steel plates. The lighthouse housed a very large
steam powered fog horn. Al Capone was a frequent boater past the light, since he often left Chicago
on boat vs. car for his own safety.
