Scott Perry had emailed, writing "I saw a photo of a building that I worked out of. I was wondering if it is still there, and if I could get pics of it. Bldg Building 658(?) (HUT) which is just beyond 679. It had an un-official skylight in it (I fell through from the roof) and had the most ugly blue paint in the office. It was used for Police Vehicle Minor maintance and where I installed the light bars on all the Police vehicles. Scott"

On a visit with Jerry Epley and Walter Smith, I was able to photograph these two very old buildings, possibly dating from WW2.
