Hi Judy. Here's a link to a photo at the SFPL web site showing the telescope arriving at the museum in February 1963.

Caption: "RELIC FOR MUSEUM--A 14-foot, 67-year-old telescope has been presented to San Francisco Maritime Museum by the Marine Exchange. Robert E. Mayer, right, is shown receiving the huge instrument from Capt. John D. Knox, president of the Marine Exchange for 1963. The telescope was built for the exchange lookout at Point Lobos (Lands End).".
