In the exact center of the photo is the motorpool (vehicle maintenance)
area. The large paved areas actually served as the primitive taxiways
for Clark Field back in the 1920s and 1930s. The large orange building
at the bottom served as the AAFES Four Seasons and Toyland stores.
The quonset buildings at the right hosted a number of miscellaneous
units and detachments; the Civil Air Patrol was housed in the one
at the furthest left of the cluster. Beyond the motorpool the
fuel tanks for the base power plant can be seen.
