Wireless Telegraph Station
The Wireless Telegraph Station is located in a protected location at the bottom of a small bluff. This building is somewhat removed from other infrastructure on the island, but it served an important role in connecting and supporting a network of electrical and radio services both internally on the island and for external communications. The building is was connected to a radio mast (now removed) that was located on the hill directly south of the water cistern. In this capacity it acted as a switch and broadcast point for communication and signaling to points external to the island. It may have been intended as the first warning of an attack on Vancouver from the north.
