Abraham Lincoln High School – Los Angeles CA

Description

The school was originally opened in 1878, but was extensively damaged in the 1933 earthquake. During the 30s and early 40s, the school was rebuilt by the WPA.

“Architect Albert C. Martin provided the Moderne design for the Lincoln High School campus when it was rebuilt following the 1933 Long Beach Earthquake. Typical of the period, the buildings are generously embellished with W.P.A. murals and sculpture.”

    Does Lincoln High School have murals in the front hallway that were painted in the 1940s?

  3. My School when I was nine. In 1979

    Does anyone have photos or drawings about the original school building that was destroyed by the earthquake? Also, does anyone know if the new building was relocated from the original location? Thank you
