Description
The Los Angeles Central Library was one of Bertram Goodhue's final projects, which he was working on when he died in 1924. Winslow took over and finished the project in 1926. The early Art Deco building featured Egyptian friezes and inscriptions on the exterior, as well as large murals and metalwork on the interior. The building was threatened with demolition in the 1960s, but a large public outcry saved the building. It was expanded in 1983, and is a Los Angeles Historic-Cultural Landmark, and on the National Register of Historic Places.
