Busan Inner Harbor Entrance Lights, Korea

Thanks to Capt. Peter Mosselberger for these 2008 photos of the lighthouses that guarded the entrance to the inner harbor of Busan (Pusan), South Korea. In both photos, the view is from the northwest, that is, from inside the harbor. Of these three lighthouses, only the white south lighthouse remains in place today. The two north lights had to be removed to make way for the Busan North Harbor Bridge. The older (red and black) north light was saved and relocated, but the newer (red) lighthouse was demolished.
