Night photo of a double row of lighted Cedar trees at the L.A. Memorial Coliseum in Exposition Park. The display was part of the Christmas Outdoors activities sponsored by the L.A. Chamber of Commerce. The stadium in Exposition Park was designed by architects John and Donald Parkinson and built in 1921-1923 with a construction cost of $955,000. When the Coliseum opened on May 1, 1923, it was already the largest stadium in Los Angeles with a capacity of 76,000. It was expanded in 1932 to 101,574. The Coliseum has hosted two Summer Olympics games, one in 1932 and the other in 1984, and was also the site of John F. Kennedy's memorable acceptance speech at the 1960 Democratic National Convention. It is home to the University of Southern California Trojans football team, and is located at 3911 South Figueroa Street.
