Empty parking lot west side of Lane Tech Stadium?

I was always wondering what was on that slab of concrete next to the stadium and off of Rockwell St. It looks like a parking lot, and according to Historic Aerials, there used to be some sort of a building there, but now, there is just an empty fenced off lot. Is it a part of Lane Tech? What was there, and what happened?
Also I noticed in the 1938 photo of the area, there was some sort of a stadium right along the river. Was that also Lane's stadium, or was it something else? Does anyone have any info on that? I am a Lane Alum and I always wondered how the original plans of Lane Tech would have looked like today if it wasnt for the cutbacks during the Depression.
