A nice Ambrose Fowler shot of the Casino on Long Beach Blvd in 1910.  Does anyone know what the building beyond it with the domed roof was ?? It appears in many photos, but never by itself.

The US Coast Guard Station (before 1915 known as the US Life Saving Service)  in Point Lookout, exact year unknown
From the collection of Kevin Brennan
To the right is how the Coast Guard Station appears today, as a church.  The flagpole, which still stands though not visible here,  was used to hoist storm warning flags when the station was active.
