View 37: Photograph shows the construction of the Los Angeles Public Library, located at 630 W. Fifth Street; view is of the southeast 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.
