Easter Morn

Easter Morn

March 1937: Photo by Paul Calvert titled “Easter Morn.”

For about 40 years during the Christmas and Easter seasons, lights in the Los Angeles City Hall tower were turned on in the pattern of a cross. The tradition was stopped in the 1970s by lawsuits.

This photo was published in the Los Angeles Times Sunday Rotogravure Section on April 4, 1937, one week after Easter.

I’ve added this image to the From the Archives Celebrating Easter photo gallery.
