Title supplied by cataloger. Designed by F. P. Burnham, this Classical Revival library building, located at Ocean and Pacific, cost $34,000 to construct in 1908. An initial grant for $12,500 from Andrew Carnegie was later increased to $30,000, covering the majority of the expense. This building served as the city's public library from 1909 until 1972, when a fire forced its closure. It was demolished a year later. A U.S. Navy dirigible flies over Lincoln Park in this aerial view of Long Beach. The Carnegie Library is in the middle of the park, partially obscured by trees. Automobiles are parked face-in along the street. A car is parked at the Speedene Gasoline station, bottom center, across from the park. Oil derricks on the horizon look like matchsticks. The Long Beach city hall, center, with its four cupolas is facing Lincoln Park. Other buildings surrounding the park are banks, apartment houses, hotels, department stores and office buildings.
