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. An aerial view of Long Beach civic center by Lincoln Park. The eight story city hall with four cupolas and a porticoed entrance faces Pacific Avenue. Cars, some two deep, are parked on all sides of Pacific Avenue as all streets feeding into Broadway, including Pacific, are blocked due to on-going street construction. The old, two story city hall building sits across the street from the new structure and faces the park. Among the businesses around the civic center are hotels, apartments, rooming houses; Buffums' department store, Sam Seelig, Federal Tires, and banks.
