LH_Aerial-03Aerial photo of Lamont-Hussey Observatory situated on Naval Hill. The words Bloemfontein was added to the photo and the arrow points towards the town centre, as the Observatory is on a hill surrounded by the city. The emblem of the White Horse is a well known feature of Naval Hill. Commentary by P Seitzer; “Undated and no indication of who the photographer was.  Probably from one of Slipher’s trips to Lamont-Hussey in the 1950s, since Henize’s shelter is evident.”
