Camp Locket California FIRE STATION F-2 T-502

Here is the photo from the completion Report of the Constructing Quartermaster, Marion C. Tadlock, of the posts Fire station, Type F-2, in 1941. The station was built to the U.S. Army's Theater of Operations Style Plans as part of phase one in the building of the Camp.

I have removed the large handwritten T-502 from the face of the photo, as the building number is evident in the building board on the front of the structure itself. I also cleaned up assorted spots and dust motes. This authorizes non exclusive, non-commercial right to make use of the photo for Campo Fire purposes. Please credit Mountain Empire Historical Society in any print or web publication uses.
