Description
Photograph of an aerial view of the control tower administration building at the new jet age terminal at Los Angeles International Airport, in September 1961. "Ticketing and satellite buildings No. 7 are in the background at the left. In the background at the right is Satellite No. 5, Western Airlines, and a portion of Ticketing Building No. 6, Regional Carriers." On both sides of the control tower are car parking lots, and yet another large one stretches out behind it. In front of the building is a line of international flags on tall poles. Directly in front of the flags is a large oval in the middle of which is a square-like platform or perhaps a fountain area. Two roads wind before the building and twist towards the backmost right of the picture. In the right foreground is a group of palm trees, while the distance is composed of what appears to be a residential area.
