Cold War reminder: SW 32nd and Texas Hydropark

These 2 concrete footings are all that remain of the air warning tower that was placed here back in 1953. The mounting studs have been cut flush with the top of the concrete block, but you can see where the tower legs used to sit.

This is the only remnant left from Portland's Cold War air raid warning sirens.
