Abraham Lincoln High School – Los Angeles CA


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.”
