Photograph of a view of the Los Angeles Civic Center with the partially completed City Hall in the background, 1926-1928. Looking eastward from the 300 block of North Hill Street. The Hall of Justice, City Hall, the courthouse, and the Hall of Records are visible in the background from left to right. All are large buildings, and City Hall is not finished. Only a skeleton of the building is visible. In the foreground, several large Victorian houses line an unpaved residential street. Early-model automobiles can be seen parked along the curbs on both sides of the street.
