Friendly Friday: Abandoned

This is my contribution to the Friendly Friday Photo Challenge: Abandoned.

The sun sets behind an abandoned building on Chantry Island just off the Lake Huron shoreline in Southampton, Ontario, Canada.

No one seems to know what the building was used for. One theory I read is that it was an ice house, used to store food when the lighthouse was tended by a keeper living on the island.

Although that theory makes me wonder why it was built so far from the lighthouse and keepers cottage.
