Aerial view of Lincoln High School, with buildings and an earthquake fault marked. The school was closed to students on November 2, 1934, after engineers reported many of the buildings were in danger of sliding down the hill toward North Broadway because of shifting ground of the hill. The engineers and geologists reported three of the buildings are in danger of collapsing down the hill upon other structures. The auditorium, music and library buildings will be torn down. The English building has been cracked from the weight of holding up the library with braced steel and concrete supports. The English, administration, and gymnasium buildings will be repaired. Other buildings will be used temporarily.
