In the 1920s Southern California experienced tremendous growth. The population of Los Angeles grew from one million people to over two million people by 1930. Building was at a frantic pace. Gas stations, train stations, restaurants, high-rise buildings, the Red Car transportation lines, and the monumental City Hall building and elaborate movie theaters were among the many construction projects. During this same era the San Francisco region experienced similar growth. It was an exciting era for California, as these two regions grew into major metropolitan centers.
