Pershing Square with lawn and fountains, circa mid to late 1950s

Pershing Square with lawn and fountains, circa mid to late 1950sPershing Square in the heart of downtown Los Angeles has had numerous names and incarnations since it was established in 1870. I don’t know when this photo was taken but I suspect it was mid to late 1950s after the entire park was demolished and excavated to build an underground parking garage. The new concrete top wasn’t deep enough to allow all those wonderful trees to be replanted, but at least Angelenos had green space and two nice fountains, which is a damn sight better than what’s there now.
