Photo attributed to Spence Air Photos. Aerial view of Downtown Los Angeles with Pershing Square visible on lower left, and City Hall on upper portion of photograph, as seen from Grand Avenue and Wilshire. Although there are dozens upon dozens of buildings, for decades no building in Los Angeles was allowed to exceed the height of City Hall, until 1957. It remained the tallest building in California from 1928-1964, at 28 stories tall (450 feet).
