Note
General note: Title from ms. caption on label.

Subject: In November 1926 work began on the dismantling of the Arequipa observatory in preparation for its relocation to South Africa. In February 1927 the instruments, except for the Bruce telescope, were shipped to Bloemfontein. That telescope was sent to Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania for a new mounting. Later it also was transferred to South Africa.
