View of the new Los Angeles City Hall, completed in 1928, with sky writing over the building reading "prosperity." This Goodhueesque structure has classical detailing at the base (Greek, main entrance & Romanesque arcades), with a Moderne campanile-like tower influenced by Ziggurat construction ; made of light colored California granite, it was the tallest building in L.A. for many years. It is seen here from the SE corner of S. Spring & Temple Streets. Architects: Associated Architects John C. Austin, John Parkinson & Albert C. Martin.
