The FPS-35 tower - now topped by an FPS-67B - on the left with the height-finder tower on the right.
That latter tower is ID`d as Bldg 42 housing the center director, finance, purchasing and records.
(Light streaks with a digital camera, what a concept)

There are two towers to the right/east of the FPS-35, this was the one further from the -35.
A hand-painted sign on one of the doors indicates "brick shop storage."

The former FPS-26 tower, apparently abandoned.

Eastern face of the operations building, Bldg. 13, now used as the academic instruction building.
