This is Falcon Field in Mesa, Arizona, the town (er, city) I grew up in.
During WWII Falcon Field served as a training base for British airmen. The mountain you see in the background is Red Mountain, and my parents’ house (the one I spent most of my life in) is located several miles from the base of the mountain).
Here are some other vintage photos for your viewing pleasure.
For contrast, here’s a modern photo the B-17G Flying Fortress “Sentimental Journey” that’s based there.
(I really need to take a ride in that thing next time I’m visiting my parents.)
Update: Because this is Oppo, a couple old timey downtown photos with old timey cars.
