Assuming this ... DC3? is still aligned with the runway, which runway has it just taken off from?

I see no picture - but in 1960, I believe Rwy 05L/23R and Rwy 05R/23L were active - which could result in photos of aircraft on approach that cannot be replicated today.

This was the 1955 runway arrangement

That's what I'm wondering-- is this 23R? Or is the aircraft departing 27R/28R and 23R is in the foreground?

Looks to me like Runway 33R/34R. Great picture to find.
