Description
The former Terminal Island Federal Prison's light switchboard which flashed alarms in case of prison break attempts, on April 18, 1942, was now the nerve center at the naval receiving station. Lieut.-Comdr. A. R. Myers, left, and Comdr. W. W. Fineman show the room's automatic button system which connects with any part of the station and is used to relay officers' messages.
