Scrip Accepted. Back of photo reads, "first City Hall, 1913, Walter and Nell Schrader. Mr. Schrader converted old City Hall into garage." Arcadia Garage building shown with a car/truck "for sale" and a little boy posing by the back tire.

Three prints of Arcadia's city hall, two of which are taken from slightly different angles but apparently on the same day. There are two copies of one of the photos. Originally built in 1918, it was on the NW corner of Huntington Drive and First Avenue. A photo from a similar angle in 1924 shows ivy growing all the way to the roof. In these photos, the ivy is half way up the outer wall. In one of the prints, a car is seen just entering the photo from the right.
