WHOI, before expansion

Before wartime expansion in the 1940's and 50's, WHOI facilities consisted of the laboratory, the pier for Atlantis, the small boat basin behind the pier, and a small pump house/utility building near the pier. This photo was taken, around 1940. The Penzance Garage—the long building to the right of the WHOI facilities, was built around 1924 to provide a place for chauffeurs to service the cars of Penzance Point residents—was owned by the MBL.
