Description
A black and white aerial photograph depicting Goat Island and the Newport waterfront. The photograph was an official military photograph taken under the heading "U.S. Naval Air Station Quonset Point, R.I." Goat Island, still a property of the U.S. Navy, appears as it would have during WWII (U.S. Naval Torpedo Station). Factories, officers' quarters, and other structures are seen throughout. On the Newport waterfront, the Point neighborhood, Cardines Field, Long Wharf, and Government Landing (among other wharves) can be seen.
