Malaga Cove School, Palos Verdes Estates, California

Abstract/Description: Image shows view looking northeast at Malaga Cove School, located at 385 Via Almar in Malaga Cove, nearing the end of its construction. Several automobiles are visible south of the school along Via Almar, with an unpaved Granvia La Costa (later Palos Verdes Drive West) in foreground. Mule teams are helping to clear the landscape north and east of the school. In the background at far right is the Frederick Law Olmsted Jr. residence, located on Rosita Place, which was demolished in 1971 due to bluff erosion. The coastline and cities of Torrance and Redondo Beach are visible in distance. The grammar school, built for a cost of $85,000, opened on April 5, 1926 and received an Honor Award from the American Institute of Architects for the most notable school architecture in Southern California for the years 1925-26.
