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

Just accept that some days, you're the pigeon, and other days the statue

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.
