Photo Caption:

Wesley A. Pingree worked for many years at the Metropolitan Pumping Station on Deer Island, shown in this photo with the tall smoke stack. The white building at the center, resembling a keepers’ duplex, was the engineers’ house, where Wesley and Josephine Pingree lived for 25 years. It was from here that Josephine witnessed the tragic events of the drowning of Deer Island Light keeper Joseph McCabe. (Courtesy of Linda Newcomb MacPherson)
