Oblique exterior view of the south faces of the west and central domes of the Griffith Observatory from the west-south-west during the final phase of construction. Signs of construction include a tall ladder resting against a buttress of the central dome, wheel barrows next to the west dome and a pile of dirt in the foreground. The original concrete surface is visible; consistent with other similar architecture of the day, the Observatory's concrete walls were left unpainted in the 1930s and 1940s.
Exterior view looking up towards towards the rose window and tower of the Wilshire Boulevard Congregational Church. An American flag and other flags are located at the top of the tower and four lines with flags attached extend down from the tower. Banners on the church advertise a fundraising effort to prevent foreclosure, reading: "Save The Tower! $25,000 will do it. Will You Give It?" and "$50,000 Will Save This Church. Have You Given Your Bit for Religion? This Church belongs to Everybody."
