UCLA, Westwood, November 8, 1938

Established in 1919, UCLA consistently ranks among the top public universities in the world. This image shows the original Romanesque Revival style buildings looking southwest, including Powell Library and Royce Hall. The top of Janss Steps, the original 87-step entrance to the University can be seen. The spired Kerckhoff Hall can be seen to the left of Powell Library in this image. Murphy Hall stands in the foreground, on the opposite side of Stone Canyon Creek (now the location of Portola Plaza), without the additions that added two wings later. The Department of Geography actually predates the establishment of UCLA, as it had been part of the pre-existing California State Normal School.
As much a part of Los Angeles lore as other iconic sites, UCLA has been featured in innumerable films and TV, including Legally Blonde, Erin Brockovich, and Buffy the Vampire Slayer.
