From left to right: LA City Hall, California Plaza, US Bank Tower (tallest in the western States), and the building behind the cluster of palms is the U.S. Post Office and United States Court House.

JT knows this town like nobody's business.

LA's City Hall is iconic; you see it in movies all the time, and old photos. Still a beautiful building. I've never been inside but would love to know if it has the same deco decor inside as out.

That's a wonderful shot. When I moved to LA (Highland Park) in 1970, I believe that the City Hall bldg was the tallest one in downtown. How things have changed.

Thanks Tash! You always bring an interesting perspective.
