Description
Future site of the new Monastery Annex, Mount Wilson Observatory. The Monastery served as a dormitory for visiting scientists. The site for the new building is seen at the top of the staircase seen in the center of this photograph. Two ends of the existing Monastery are seen on the far left and right-hand sides. Another small building, built into the hillside, is seen to the right of the staircase. A wheelbarrow is at the foot of the stairs; trees are in the background.
