 This is a QSL card (verification of reception) from one of the many radio amateurs experimenting with television transmission and reception in the early days of television. Amateurs could purchase simple cameras for broadcasting.

763 Gower St. today. From Steve Dichter:

The address of the radio amateur on the QSL card, transmitting television pictures, was at 763 Gower St. Hollywood, Ca. That's just a couple of miles from my home. I drove by today and snapped a picture of the house. Certainly the same building, as these small simple wood framed houses were built in the 20's. The house is located directly across the street from the Gower St. entrance to Paramount Studios . The Paramount property was, in 1932, RKO Studios.

W6XYZ broadcast from the Paramount Studios property in the early 40s.
