Photograph of an aerial view of Los Angeles, showing the then new City Hall and the city gasworks, ca. March 1928. Towards the top of the photo, wide, cylindrical wire-frame towers bear the title "L.A. Gas". The Los Angeles City Hall building stands at the center of the image, a tower flanked to either side by small highrise structures extending from a flat, wide one-story base level. What appears to be a gothic church can be seen just in front of it and to the left, its bell tower extending above the buildings around it. A second building also in front, but to the right, features a smaller clock tower. The surrounding area is a grid work of city streets packed to either side by tenement, business and commercial buildings.
