Los Angeles will be celebrating the centennial of its City Hall in a few years.  Although it was completed in 1928, John Parkinson's design for the building had been completed almost a decade before.  Political wrangling had delayed the start of construction almost to the point that people wondered whether it would ever be built, despite the rapidly growing city's considerable need for new government headquarters.  A detail of the front steps reveal a repetition of the familiar stepped pyramid at the building's top.
