The picture fails miserably at giving a feel for the size. These giant columns are all that remains of the old wooden blimp hanger used to house multiple blimps during World War II when blimps were used for enemy submarine surveillance. They serve as a reminder of the importance Naval Airships served in our history. For more information on this remarkable place go here http://www.texas-flyer.com/chambers/landmark.htm
