When I was a boy, the City Hall was the tallest building in Los Angeles and it could be seen from any direction from miles away.

For many years it was the tallest building by law. There was a height limit on new construction due to the possibility of earthquakes. Since buildings are now set on springs, they go much higher.

Coil springs or tapered leaf.?

They use Hassler beehive springs. Front and rear.

But City Hall was built on Spring.

Does City Hall still stand?
Are any of the surrounding buildings still standing?
Beautiful photo John!

That 1924-25 T Tudor must have a set of those new rear hydraulic disc brakes. He knows he can stop short of a crash if that truck stops quickly!

Yes, it still stands.

When I was a very young boy viewing City Hall from atop Sepulveda pass, I would tell my dad, "there is Jack Webb's city"

Seems like those City Slickers really like to accessorize their T's. :-)
