I do not know when the picture was taken, however, the area appears to be much the same as when I was there. The TPS-10 radar was located in one of the buildings the arrow points toward and the height finder was in an adjacent bldg.

I dated a girl whose house was just a few feet beyond the fence line and only about 100 feet from the radar building. Good thing they didn`t have TV in those days, the radiation would have played hell with reception. On night when it was clear and we got bored we would tie fluorescent tubes to the antenna and enjoy the light show.
