Photograph of a drawing by Lastenia Tapia(?) of the first American Los Angeles City Hall, an adobe building located about 200 feet east of North Los Angeles Street, [s.d.]. The low rectangular building is at center and is made from adobe. A covered porch supported by tall wooden poles wraps its way around the two sides of the building that are visible. An American flag is flying from a pole at left. The spackle over the adobe walls is missing in several places, revealing bare adobe bricks.; A caption in the bottom left corner reads "First American City Hall. 1850-1853, located about two hundred feet eastside of North Los Angeles Street. C. J. Prudhomme." The name Lastenia Tapia appears in the bottom right corner.
