An aerial view of a row of three hangars, plus a corner of fourth, at the airport, during what is surely a public open house, gauged by the two long rows of parked automobiles in front of the hangars. The administration building is at the lower right corner. A row of single engine aircraft is on the tarmac. The hangar closest to the camera has "Oakland"painted on the roof and "Fillmore" above the open hangar door [See the name of the pilot, Wm. Fillmore, on the back of 2001.1.7] The second hangar has the words SHELL Aviation Service painted on the roof, and Duck Air Services above the open hangar door. The upper right corner ofthe photo has been cropped. A notation on the back ofthe photo indicates that it was used in the 1932 yearbook
