Renovate 1950s shower drain

I have removed a tile shower stall (walls and pan) and have encountered an old rusty drain/flange. I don't know the anatomy of the shower drain, so cannot figure out how to remove/replace/modify in preparation for replacing the concrete shower pan. Can anyone shed light on what to do this this old drain...short of tearing up the slab foundation?

I removed the top portion by twisting off 3 rusted bolts. I broke some of the concrete slab just enough to see below grade...but cannot see a connection point for removing the flange.
