When I was a kid, LA City Hall was known to me and my friends as the Superman building, since in the opening of the TV series from the early '50s he was seen flying up, up and away from it.  It's civic purpose meant nothing to us.  John Parkinson's design took many years to be realized due to all sorts of political squabbling, but it was finally completed in 1928.  Its 100th anniversary is fast approaching.
