Lighthouse of the Week, March 29 - April 4, 2015: New London Range Rear, Canada

There are a lot of pictures of this one, apparently because it has a literary/movie tie-in (Anne of Green Gables).  Also, it's on Canada's picturesque Prince Edward Island. There's a bit of a mystery, too:   I can't figure out if it has a red stripe down the front or not.

In the pictures at Lighthouse Friends page on this lighthouse, there isn't a red stripe.  But in one of the pictures below, which seems to be the same lighthouse, there is one.  So if there is or was one, is it there now, or was it painted over?

I think the red stripe is a recent addition.  This distant picture at is dated 2015 and shows the stripe.

The bottom picture is a still showing the lighthouse from Anne of Green Gables, the Canadian TV series.   I  don't know if it was in other Anne of Green Gables movies.
