Andromeda Galaxy, circa 1959

Just found this 1959 image of M31 that I talked about earlier in my blog on the Palomar Skies blog.
Photographed through one of my other favourite telescopes, the 48-inch Schmidt telescope at Palomar (now known as the Samuel Oschin Telescope).
Here's an up to date (interactive) image taken with the same scope.
