Description Photograph of Raychem Headquarters, c. 1957-1975. Silver gelatin photograph shows a landscaped area outside of an office building. Two young pine trees and small shrubs surround several large boulders in a gravel covered area in the foreground. Past a paved sidewalk, a similar gravel paved area with taller pine trees is visible in the distance at center left. A large two-story building at mid-ground appears on the upper right half of the image. The building features rectangular brick columns, large windows, and a shingled roof. Just left of center in the image, a person in a light colored short sleeved shirt and dark pants walks toward the building. "RAYCHEM CORP. / PHOTO DEPARTMENT / FILE # 173-51A" is stamped in red ink at center on the back of the photograph. This photograph is part of a group of photos stored in a mailing envelope sent to Ms. Sue Norton at the Raychem Corporation from Mape Industries in Palo Alto.
