I am seeking information on a photographer by the name of Geo. L. Levison.
I have an original Art Deco photograph, which portrays the courtyard of a building (possibly a hotel?) - dated 10/1939.
If anyone can supply further knowledge on the photographer or possibly the location/history of the building it would be greatly appreciated.
Thank you.

    Hi from Sydney Australia. Most of the hits I got on Google abou George L Levison were about San Francisco. Another theme was Jews against Zionism. But when I googled "Court of the Moon" I came across a post card from Golden Gate International Exposition, which was held on an artificial island near San Francisco in 1939-1940.
    The exposition was the Pacific Coast's answer to the 1939-40 New York's World Fair. It was held on Treasure Island in the Bay. The shot you have looks like it is a shot of one of the buildings mentioned: either the Palace of the Mines, Metals and Machinery or the Palace of Homes and Gardens.
    From what I can tell it might be the former from the angle, but .....?
    There's a ton of postcards on the fair at flickr.
