This section of an aerial photo shows the 248th field probably sometime in the late 1920s or early 1930s. The National Guard had 4 companies of troops, each using 2 rows of tents behind one of the Mess Halls. The canvas tents were put up on wooden frames that remained in the field when the troops left until the next season. This photo shows the tent frames lined up behind the mess halls and a gun visible in Battery Quarles. The foundation of the upper mess hall is now surrounded by trees, and the upper 3 (of 9) rows of tent frames would also be in the trees.
