Early Los Angeles City Hall on Broadway
F. H. Maude Photo #150 depicting City Hall, Los Angeles, Cal. is written on the front of the image, but the back is stamped C. C. Pierce & Co., Photographers, 313 S. Spring Street, Los Angeles, Cal. Written in pencil reads, “The City Hall on Broadway between 2nd and 3rd Streets. These were the days of the horse and buggy and cable cars, built 1888-9.” Closer inspection confirms there is no overhead wire, so the cable car statement is correct.
