The Bruins began playing football at the Coliseum.
City Hall became the tallest building in Los Angeles.
The stock market had yet to crash.
It was 4 years until L.A. would host its first Olympic Games.
20 years before completion of the Hollywood Freeway.
37 years until the riots in Watts.
41 years preceding the birth of the internet at UCLA.
And 79 years before NBC announced the move from Burbank to the UC.
Who says Los Angeles has no history?
