    The earliest auto camp in Southwest Portland was the Portland West Side Auto Camp, built at the heart of the John Slavin donation land claim. After Slavin died in 1908, his family subdivided and sold off the property. Dr. Edward A. Pierce bought the lot containing the 1882 Slavin house in 1917, remodeled it, added twenty-five cabins, and opened the Pierce Tuberculosis Sanatorium. Pierce closed the sanatorium in 1925 and leased the land and buildings to George and Elsie Battey, who converted the sanatorium into the Portland West Side Auto Camp. The camp was an immediate success. During the winter of 1925-6 the Battey’s demolished the Slavin house and used the wood to construct twenty – eight additional cabins. The camp operated from 1925 to 1953, first as an auto camp, then as a motel, and finally as a trailer park. Had those early auto tourists known some of the cabins they were staying in once housed tuberculosis patients, the camp probably would have seen few guests. The site of the auto camp (the northeast corner of SW Capitol Highway and SW Sunset) is occupied today by The Hillsdale library, apartments, homes, and commercial buildings.

    If I had to bet I'd say that there were likely multiple boxes like this painted on the front straight where the cars would be lined up before the start for driver introductions. And they were probably spaced so that the push trucks (or maybe pull trucks) could easily get into postion to get everyone started. Just a guess on my part so I'd welcome anyone to comment that might have more info.

    This is just a guess, but I'm guessing the box is the "midget" qualification box, like the one you stick your carry-on into at the airport. If you want to race, your car has to fit all four wheels inside the box.

    If you look at the tracks on the pavement, each person is pulling into the box, then pulling through and turning to the left. If it were a starting box the tracks would head straight out.

    I agree. One of the coolest shots on this thread. I would love to know where this is.

    I'm leaning towards the "on deck" box. Perhaps before qualifying attempts? Gary

  19. My uncle Bill flew the Delta Daggers out of McChord AFB in quick response to this early warning system.

    The F102 was the first fighter that could fly over mach 1 in level flight and had "supposedly" the capability to intercept long range ICBM's.

    It was a Delta Dagger F102 that cost him his life in January 1959.

    To protect public decorum, naturally.
    I don't blame them either - a very public display of reckless disregard for modesty.

    Haha
    Less 'enlightened' times.
