Title supplied by cataloger. In 1920, Long Beach commissioned W. Horace Austin and his former partner, civil engineer Harvey H. Lochridge, to design a new city hall. The eight story classical building had four domed towers and was completed in 1923. It sustained some damage in the 1933 earthquake and was remodeled by Cecil Schilling and engineer C. D. Walles with Art Deco details in 1933-34. The Long Beach City Hall is decorated with buntings above the entrance and over the windows on the first and second floor. Striped awnings cover the windows on the ground floor and cars are parked fender to fender by the building. The eight story brick building has four cupolas, a porticoed entrance and faces Pacific Avenue. A sign on the street corner welcomes the world to the Pacific Southwest Exposition that is taking place in Long Beach.
