Evolution of the Los Angeles Skyline, with David McMenamin (ERHS S’65, Occidental College ’69)

Have you ever wondered why Los Angeles did not have any buildings taller than the City Hall until the late 1960s, or why, until recently, LA skyscrapers had flat tops, or why downtown LA now has an “old” financial district and a “new” financial district? David will answer these and other questions covering major events that influenced the development of the LA skyline since the founding of Los Angeles in 1781.
