Description
Photograph was edited for publication purposes
Photograph caption dated August 4, 1960 reads "Los Angeles City Councilmen James Corman, left, and Lemoine Blanchard are just two of city's officials about to break precedent and loosen collars and ties in heat wave that has 'really hit City Hall.' Officials say they have it in for weatherman, building's executive elevator and its air-conditioning system. Elevator is on blink, making men walk up to offices; air-conditioner is out of order, will be for three weeks, and weatherman, only one of three working, is busy predicting more heat."
