Looks like a Douglas O-38 observer plane.

Any chance of ID'ing the unit from the tiny symbol on the side of it?

It is the 115th Observation Squadron, California National Guard. Here is a shot of what may be the same aircraft (#4 on fuselage) a few years earlier.  Your photo was taken at San Luis Obispo, long used by the 115th for summer camp.

Hello Will,

Thank you for the information.

Do you study all the NG Observer Squadrons or just the 115th?

Peter,

 

I am a fan of all NG Observation Squadrons and am always adding their photos to my website. That being said, I did do a couple years with the 115th's descendant: the 115th Airlift Squadron.

Here is the link - browse to your heart's content. Note: My website is where I share my aviation images with fellow enthusiasts, therefore, it costs nothing, and sells nothing.

Steindaddie,

 

You have a really nice site.  If you have more photos of the 113th Observation Squadron, I'd love to see them!
