NOAA Photo Library Image - wea01177

Antennas, probably at Greenbury Point, Maryland, in about 1920. These were U. S. Navy communications antennas meant to communicate with Europe during the First World War and probably also with ships. Perhaps this slide was meant to illustrate the potential of wireless radio communication for weather dissemination. From an old-fashioned glass lantern slide.
