Description

A brochure concerning the construction of the Orlando City Hall in Orlando, Florida. The brochure outlines the city officials responsible in the various steps of its conception, construction, and design processes. A brief stapled on the inside of the front cover details the construction materials as well as the technical features of the building. A majority of the brochure consists of floor plan designs. The building was designed by noted Orlando architect Richard Boone Rogers under the administration of Mayor William Beardall (1923-2011), and was constructed on land acquired during the administration of Mayor J. Rolfe Davis (1904-1988). The building was constructed by Tampa-based firm C.A. Fielland from 1956 to 1958 during the administration of Mayor Bob Carr (1899-1967). Dedicated on October 3, 1958, the building served as Orlando’s city hall until its implosion on October 25, 1991, following the construction of a new City Hall less than ten feet away as a product of Mayor Bill Frederick’s efforts to beautify and improve Orlando. The building's implosion is featured in a scene from the Warner Bros.’ 1992 film Lethal Weapon 3.
