Los Angeles City Hall from Hill Street
"“Great care was taken to see that the [Los Angeles] City Hall was constructed of native materials. California granite faces the exterior up to the fourth floor. A melange of local ores formed the bronze for the ceremonial doors of the forecourt. The building’s mortar was mixed with sand from each county, cement from each mill in the state, and water from each of the twenty-one missions. Inside, the building features a four-story Spanish-Gothic rotunda and, in a heavily romantic style, several marble mosaics depicting local history.” -- Raymond Chandler’s Los Angeles by Elizabeth Ward and Alain Silver
