About this artwork
Exterior view of the Administration Building at the Grand Central Airport in Glendale. A small airplane numbered NC-8413 is in front of the building.
Historical Background: The City of Glendale, situated at the eastern end of the San Fernando Valley and bisected by the Verdugo Mountains, is considered a suburb of the Greater Los Angeles Area. Incorporated in 1906, Glendale was originally part of Rancho San Rafael, founded by Don Jose Maria Verdugo who settled in the area in 1784. The Grand Central Airport Terminal was designed by Henry L. Gogerty in 1928 blending the Spanish Colonial Revival style with Art Deco influences. The Airport first began its service between Los Angeles and New York, and it played a vital role as the premier airport in Southern California. The building represents the simple concept of early airport terminal design, and it is listed on the Glendale Register of Historic Resources. The airplane shown in this image was a Ford 4-AT Tri-motor owned by the Maddux Air Lines, which carried 12 passengers from San Diego to Los Angeles during its inaugural flight in California.
