COTTON FOUNDATION STONES. [Newspaper Article] — Geraldton Guardian and Express — 23 January 1929
COTTON FOUNDATION STONES. ? * ? The employment of cotton as a foundation for buildings erected on sandy soil, is a matter of common knowledge, but the story of the first apr-lit-ation of the material to this purpose is not generally known. We are indebted to Captain W. Roberts, one of the veterans of the Liverpool pilot service, for the facts. Dealing with the ancient light at Leastowe, between the Mersey and the Dee, he told of the difficulties en countered in the search for a solid base, and how at last the wreck of a cotton ship oflered an inspiration to -'he 'builders. Sorse of t.'h«. cotton which had been wasned ashore was mixed with sand.i and on this a mas sive stone tower was erected so firmly that it 'was found to withstand the fury of the mightiest tempests. One other little-known tact vras also mentioned by Captain Roberts. All the lighthouses are teetotal in stitutions. Drink is aflowed in none cf them.
