Lund Observatory 1940-1980
This picture is taken in the lecture theatre of the old observatory in the fall of 1940 (the planetarium would be housed here from 1978-2000).
This picture was published in Kvällsposten (local news paper) on March 6th, 1955 under the headline "Jättearbete med stjärnpanorama slutfört vid lundaobservatoriet". Left of the Milky Way Panorama we see Tatjana and Martin Kesküla, who painted the panorama and on the right we have Knut Lundmark who commissioned it.
