Cary Schneider and Robin Mayper of The Times library were going through our photos of observatories yesterday looking for pictures of Mt. Wilson and came across this unlabeled item. It appears to have been taken in the early 1930s. Any ideas?

Update: As Dale Trader points out, this is the Astrophysics Laboratory at Caltech. Here's a photo from 1939 at the Los Angeles Public Library.
