Torrance City Hall (former) – Torrance CA

Description

“The original Torrance City Hall on Cravens Avenue was designed by architects Walker & Eisen and built with [PWA] funds in 1936. The City Hall was an efficient, standard moderne building that served for 25+ years… By the 1970s, a new, bigger-by-a-factor-of-maybe-twenty City Hall complex was built and the old building became a Home Savings… Home Savings moved away in the 80s, and the building is now the local office of Time Warner Cable.”

Although most of the original building remains, the original center seal, lamp posts, flower pots, flag pole, a decorative eagle sculptures are no longer.
