The Light Through City Hall's "Secret" Windows

For your viewing pleasure, some more historic 1920s construction photos of Pasadena City Hall:

Petrea's "Secret Window" over at Pasadena Daily Photo inspired me to show you these two photos:




Parking Day or Nite (but not for much longer!):

A couple of early, early photos when the land was still being cleared:



OK, just one more for now:

That will just have to hold you for awhile! There are plenty more for future posts.

Oh, no...

I understand, Ann, what you're tryin to say:
any of you photo-bloggers want to get in a photo shoot-out? ...here I am!

"There are plenty more for future posts." - a not so subtle threat!

I've created a City Hall folder where I'm keeping these photos. Look at that rebar "thicker then a thumb". Brings tears to my eyes.

Treasures. They make me take in a big breath and feel nostalgic and I've only lived here a few short years. Thank you so much for posting these.

I'm glad they didn't have color photos back then. Black and white makes them more nostalgic.
