This photo was taken on Wednesday, September 4, 1940 at the KYW Radio transmitter site in Whitemarsh Township, Pennsylvania. That location is northwest of Philly, not far from Plymouth Meeting.

At the time of this picture, KYW Radio operated on 1020 on the AM dial. It moved to its familiar 1060 location on the AM dial in spring of 1941. You can see two of the station's remote broadcasting vehicles. The shot also shows one of the four wooden tower bases with steel masts that supported the station's directional array.
