History of the Nab Tower

I've been meaning to post this for a while but kept forgetting-the 'Somewhere for the weekend' thread reminded me.

There's even newsreel footage of it being put in place!

Great post Nos.
Old Navy term. First the Nab, then the Warner, Blockhouse Fort and Lavatory
Corner
Your will enjoy this, including the classic sounds, despite the background lingo

Cheers.
