Two things:
1st. This commercial show and sale is really fun. I've been twice. Both Gary Fredburg and Fred Berk, Museum folks, have booths at the event.

2nd. The Lindburg Light on top of the LA City Hall was installed in 1928 and operated until WWII. It was a gift of the LA Chamber of Commerce and first lit by President Calvin Coolidge who pressed a telegraph key from the White House.
It was visible for 60 miles and signaled in Morse Code "LA" as a beacon for planes coming into the LA Airport.
It was put into use again in 1958, and restored in 1992.
