What really gets me is that it shows the pedestrian bridges between the two telephone buildings. The Pacific Telephone and Telegraph offices at left (Bliss & Faville, 1924) was joined to the new Southern California Telephone HQ (Charles Day Woodford) when it was finished in 1947. We've seen the shot by the great Palmer Conner here on NLA before I'm sure:

When did the microwave towers get added to the telephone building on the right? I seem to remember them being there by the late1960s, or even before. Plus weren't additional floors added to the building? As the giant gasometers went away, the microwave towers went up. Hmmm.
