NBC Master Control Room, 111 Sutter Street,
22nd Floor, San Francisco, ca. 1938.

At this time, all West Coast network switching, Los Angeles to Seattle, was done through this room. (Note the telegraph sounder at the edge of the supervisor's desk. This connected with the KGO and KPO transmitters at Oakland and Belmont.)
