Monrovia High School Panorama
With all the work being planned to add to and rehab the high school, I keep going back to capture the views of the school that may not exist much longer.
I've taken many shots, and so have many others, of the bell tower and entrance in the center there. This time I wanted give an idea of what the school looks like if you're standing out on the sidewalk and can see across the entire front.
"Monrovia HS, 1928, John C Austin and Frederic M Ashley (Austin Whittlesey) NE corner of Madison Ave & Colorado Blvd.; A Palladian facade on an otherwise Spanish Revival building. Whittlesey, the designer, was well known for his books on Spanish architecture."
from An Architectural Guidebook to Los Angeles by Robert Winter - 2003 - 546 pages (it's on books.google.com!!)
Tash, thanks for the research. I didn't know who designed it, that really helps!
