Additional information:

NET-056 is registered by the ARLHS in 2006 as Maraken Harbour H, without further information, except that it is classified as “historic”. No physical evidence left on the location is to be expected. Since a harbour named Maraken is unknown to us, we believe the entry refers to something “historic” in the harbour of Marken. 

Here is an interpretation concerning NET-056:

Artifact. Former iron/steel laternhouse from Marken lighthouse, saved in 1992, located (with symbolic light) in harbour entrance near the life guard station. See also NET-017 Paard van Marken and Marken harbour.
