A black and white photograph featuring an abandoned administrative building on Goat Island. During World Wars I and II, Goat Island served as the location of the U.S. Naval Torpedo Station. The large building at center appears to be made of brick and shaped concrete. It has several sets of regularly spaced rectangular windows. At left is a second building, made mostly of brick. It has arched windows and an arched doorway with keystones. It also has a decorative molding at its roofline and a dormer with three windows. At right, two additional buildings are visible. Debris is scattered along the road, where the words "SLOW CHILDREN" are seen painted at center. In the distance, St. John the Evangelist Church in the Point neighborhood can be seen.
