Postcard of 100 Inch Telescope Mt. Wilson Observatory

This is a very early 1900s sepia real photo postcard of the famous 100-inch telescope at Mt. Wilson Observatory in California.

It is in excellent unsent condition with fairly crisp corners and no yellowing. It is 3 3/8" by 5 3/8". Manufacturer and photographer unstated.

We believe this is the first use of this particular photo on a postcard. This photo was used later by E C Knopp Co. to make a linen postcard.
