Description
Seen from an airplane is the top and front view of the observatory/planetarium. The Astronomers Monument, designed by Archibald Garner, is out front on the well manicured front lawn, and some parking with cars is seen around the back side (probably for the staff). Behind the planetarium are the tree covered hills and farther back the beginnings of buildings and homes in Hollywood. The observatory was built in 1935. Architects: John C. Austin and Frederick M. Ashley.
