LAPL Central Library construction, view 38( Visual )

1 edition published in 1925 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

View 38: Photograph shows the construction of the Los Angeles Public Library, located at 630 W. Fifth Street; view is of the northeast corner. The structure is well under way and beginning to take shape as construction workers use thousands of pieces of plywood to make the frame. It appears the construction method being used is Balloon Framing, which was a method of wood construction used primarily in the United States up until the mid-1950s. This technique utilized long continuous framing studs that ran from the sill plate to eave line with intermediate floor structures nailed to them; wall sheathing, usually a plywood, was applied to the framing thus eliminating the need for scaffolds. The large white building on the left is the Bible Institute, later to become Church of the Open Door/Biola Institute, located at 555 S. Hope Street. Rows of cars line both sides of 5th Street in the foreground. Photograph dated: March 2, 1925
