Also see . . . "Camel Before the Pyramids". The workers had uncovered the original floor of the Starlight Ballroom, which was originally an open-air night club when the Campbell Building was first opened. We can only surmise that the floor may have been covered up after the 1933 Long Beach earthquake and may have been buried for all those years. Within a generation or two, everyone had forgotten that the mural existed. (Submitted on March 22, 2014, by Michael Kindig of Long Beach, California.)
