Not the best shot, but the only one I have that mimics how the Observatory looked in 1906.

Take a look at this link to a State Library postcard image to see what I mean.

Panasonic Lumix DMC-TZ5
1/500s f/3.5 at 5.3mm iso100 full exif

other sizes: small medium original

It looks like the same building, but a bit more slanted! :)
