Original undated photograph caption reads, "Full face view of the new Hollywood Bowl shell now in the process of being placed together by workmen. The various parts of the Bowl have been constructed and transported to the Bowl like a mosaic they are being brought together. Lloyd Wright the architect writes; 'The shell can be removed to clear the stage when pagaents [sic] require the use of the whole area. Accoustically [sic] it is designed to distribute the sound evenly asensitivelyely to the twenty five thousand people in the audience, a task required of no other shell--a condition that has been met by a unique arrangement of the segmental faces."; Additional photograph caption dated July 7, 1989 article reads, "The reflection pool at the Hollywood Bowl was removed about 15 years ago and 180 box seats were added, but they are still hard to come by."
