South Pasadena High School Auditorium – South Pasadena CA
In the aftermath of the devastating 1933 Long Beach Earthquake, the Public Works Administration (PWA) helped rebuild this high school. PWA work included the science building and the auditorium.
“The size of the stage enables the production of major plays. Covered passageways connect the auditorium with the other buildings of the school plant. The inside is finished with acoustical plaster. An organ is installed by the stage. The project was completed in April 1937 at a construction cost of $113,528 and a project cost of $126,378.”
