This is a photo of Mount Wilson Observatory or Opids Camp, California made from an original 5x7 inch glass or film negative between 1912 and 1930. If you have more information
about this or any of the others I have, please go to this page and send me a note.
Thanks, Mike Ryan
"This is July 1, 1917. Everyone was in an especially patriotic mood because of WWI and flags were everywhere. The truck was followed by a procession including newsreel cameras. Disaster nearly
struck as the truck rounded Mt. Harvard when the roadway gave way just 1/4 mile from the top." M.S. note.
These photos were made on 5 x 7 inch Glass Plate negatives leading me to believe that the photographer worked on the mountain.
