Panel affixed to the Shallowtail Lighthouse on Grand Manan Island, New Brunswick, Canada. It recalls the tragic loss of the 2nd keeper of the lighthouse, Mrs. Elodie Ingalls Foster, who in 1936, attempted to light the lighthouse lamp and for unforeseen reasons, the fuel used engulfed her in flames and she subsequently passed away despite best efforts to save her. So very tragic indeed!
