Research shows this is the Clevite/Gould sonar testing facility. On the east side of Jaquay Rd just north of Osborne Rd, Columbia Township.

That part of the quarry was actually an underwater, missile testing facility not a floating pump house.

Not quite missiles, it was for testing the sonar guidance systems for the Clevite/Gould Mk 48 mod 5 and 6 torpedoes.

So you want everyone to supply you with all the information so you can sell it for $99. Maybe you should hire someone to do the research, it isn't that difficult.

Well, first of all, tracking down a photo like this IS difficult. You need a lot of resources and time. This one was on my list for over a year until I managed to track it down. And VintageAerial makes them available for viewing to everyone. They do need to sell photos, they are a business after all.
