A pair of 80 s F606W exposures of NGC 1003 are available. We used
the nuclear offset position for SN 1937D from the online Asiago catalog
(48" east and 1" south). The SN appears to have occurred along a spiral
arm between several stellar associations, although the inclination is
high (68^deg^) for this galaxy.
NGC 1003 - SN 1937D: two patches are identified in the immediate
surroundings of the SN location: they are both displaced in the x
coordinate from the SN position and are compact. The hosting galaxy was
oberved with WFPC-2 on the HST. The region around the SN is not very
crowded and compact sources of emission are visible. Two groups of stars
are observed South of the SN immediate environment and appear unrelated
to the region of interest.
