What was in the lantern in the lighthouse?

Asked by Wyatt Banks

The lantern is comprised of three parts (1) the lower Service Room, which is the location of the clockworks (for rotating optics), fuel tanks (A) for an IOV type lamp, and vents (B). It was in the Service Room that the keeper cleaned the lamp chimneys and prepared the lamp for the coming night.
