WW2 Submarine Watch Tower

According to the Historical Society of Palm Beach County website, during World War II German submarines sank 24 ships in Florida waters.  Who knew?  Ormond By The Sea’s Coastal Watch Tower, erected in 1942, was one of more than 15,000 civilian  observation posts - and is one of the few that still stands.  (B&W photo from Library of Congress; my photos taken 7/23/12)
