Pasadena PIO's tour of city hall, in two parts!!!

On May 8, the city of Pasadena's Public Information Officer, Ann Erdman, honored local bloggers by offering a tour of the recently renovated Pasadena City Hall. Ann was a fabulous tour guide and hostess! She told us about the history of the building...from the town fathers city council meeting debating the merits of the key or the crown as the appropriate symbol for the crest, the million plus dollars it cost in the 1920's to construct the building, and the most recent retrofit and renovations...

An impressive entrance!!!

Original light fixtures...

An often photographed of the city hall can be rented for special events, or to photograph a wedding party, or....

I think he was sticking his tongue out cause Virginia wasn't in the crowd...I think he wanted his pic taken by the Master!!!

Ann, doing her thing...and doing it so well!!!

The courtyard and back entrance of City Hall...

One of the most impressive aspects of the renovation was the attention to detail...

The stairway to heaven???

The illustrious mayors of the City of Pasadena...
