United Fruit's ship-to-shore station at New Orleans

I am trying to gain information and possible photographs of the United Fruit Company's ship-to-shore radio facility that was located on Marconi Drive at the corner of Navarre Avenue possibly as late as 1940. My understanding is that the station was dismantled at the beginning of WW-II and the equipment was turned over to the war effort. Any information would be greatly appreciated.
