Picture of Instructables/Squid Labs HQ in 1963 Answered
Telstar Logistics sent me this picture of the Alameda Naval Air Station from 1963, where you can see the control tower, which is the current Instructables and Squid Labs HQ.
Original photo available here, where it's noted that:
In the foreground: a Piper U-11A Aztec
In the background: a Lockheed P2V Neptune from Patrol Squadron VP-19, tail no. 147948
