Caption: Edwin Powell Hubble (1889-1953), US astronomer and cosmologist, using a telescope, in 1914, in Silver Hills, Indiana, at John Roberts' home at 1235 Main Street, Hill Road. It is late afternoon and Hubble is looking west. Hubble is most famous for his Law (1929) that galaxies move apart faster the further away they are, which is important evidence for the expansion of the universe. He had earlier (1923) used the 100-inch telescope at the Mount Wilson Observatory, California, to discover that the Andromeda nebula was a galaxy outside our own.
