This just in from Gunnar Andreassen:

[Hi Didier,

I found this photo for sale on ebay some time ago. I had never seen it before. It doesn't have a very high resolution, but it is possible to identify a lot of people. It is probably taken in the summer of 1931. Rudy Zamora, the man in dark clothes in the first row, was employed only one year, from early 1931 till early 1932. There's a total of 108 people.]

- Great picture... It seems like as the Studio grew, these photos became increasingly rare.
- Wish there was a higher resolution image available.

Great picture! Have to admit, on first glance, I thought to myself, "Now why would a staff photograph be on 5-punch paper?" A split-second later I realized that my expectations had momentarily transformed those little square architectural details at the top of the picture into punch holes on animation paper. Sometimes we see what we expect to see!
