A marine chart of Saint Pierre et Miquelon and Canada was used as a base for the design of the block.  The quality of the image that I found only allow me to show 2 of the many lighthouses whose location are described in that chart.  


Point Plate in Langlade (H-0330) and Cap Blanc in Miquelon (H-0328). The red light zone of both lighthouses are depicted too. They converge over the Veaux Marins rocks.
With a close and personal look of the block, many more lighthouse locations will appear.

Thank you very much Eckhard for the alert
