1970: Old Base. It is believed that Operations had already moved to the new site by this time since there is no evidence of vehicles or flags. The auxiliary power generator building, is on the right, the one with the exhaust sticking out over the doorway. At he left is the carpentry shop and garage.    (Photo by Bill Collings.
