Venice High School – Los Angeles CA

Description

"When Venice High School first opened, classes were held in the former Lagoon Bathhouse. A campus in the Neoclassical style was constructed in 1913-1914, but was demolished following the 1933 Long Beach Earthquake. The architectural firm of Austin and Ashley, much favored by the Board of Education, drew the plans for the new Moderne buildings, which were erected between 1935 and 1937."
