Millspaugh Hall at Los Angeles City College, seen here in 1946, dated to the 1920s, when the Vermont Avenue campus was home to the Southern Branch of the University of California. That school later moved to Westwood and became UCLA. The hall was demolished in the 1960s because it didn’t meet earthquake standards. (Time Life Pictures/Getty Images)
