Manual Arts High School – Los Angeles CA

Description

After the original 1910 school building was destroyed in the 1933 earthquake, the current building was financed by the PWA:

“Architects John and Donald Parkinson, successors to the architectural firm of Parkinson and Bergstrom which had provided the design for the original plant of Manual Arts High School in 1910, were called upon by the District for the post-1933 earthquake reconstruction of the school. The new buildings were constructed of reinforced concrete, with architectural interest provided by horizontal banding, rounded corners, concrete grilles, and tiled entries.”
