Above: Where it all began - twice. Clifford's snapshot of the California State National Guard Armory building, the site of his
adventures and many years later those of the Brotherhood. Looking roughly northeast from the roof of the State Exhibition Building,
Many years later the Exhibits Department would have its shop and office in the basement of the far northeast corner of the building.
The basement room known to the Exhibits Department as "Lab 1" and where the entrance to the lower tunnel complexes was
discovered was located in the near corner of the building just behind the large clump of trees.
