L-shell photoelectric cross section measurements have been made at 36·818 and 74·409 keV for four elements in the range 81 ≤Z ≤ 92. The measurements at 74·409 keV are found to agree with theory, within experimental uncertainties, but the experimental values at 36·818 keV are found to be higher than the theoretical predictions. The possible reasons for the observed discrepancy are discussed.
