Los Angeles City Hall …

This image of the City Hall in Los Angeles was made back in the 1940’s, on one of my dad’s trips out west to visit his sister who was a nurse in Los Angeles.  I still have a few of these negatives from his trips out west that I plan on posting in the future.  An interesting side note about this building … if you travel to Baton Rouge Louisiana,  you will see a building similar to this structure.  Governor Huey Long had been out to LA and was so fascinated with this building that he built an exact replica for the state capital in Baton Rouge.  But the more remarkable thing was that he built the Louisiana Capital building in less that two years!  I picked up a flyer telling about the history of the building that I will find and post some more info later.  Thanks for looking …
