Historians now call it "Red Lead Row". I can't remember what it was known as when we lived next door. For folks who have no clue what I'm talking about, this is the Mothball Fleet near 32nd Street Naval Base, as photographed by Howard Rozelle in August 1950. That being a few days after the onset of the Korean War I would think the place was about to explode with activity.
