    Designed in 1935 by Gordon B. Kaufmann it houses the Los Angeles Times Newpaper. It's a beautiful building that is represents streamline design. An interesting aspect, its supposely not listed on any of the county or state historic landmarks, which is usually a sign of being able to have it torn down and replaced by a newer structure.

    Located on W. 1st Street, Los Angeles Ca.

    LA Times

    The Los Angeles Times Building, designed by Gordon Kaufman, opened in 1935. At the time it was the largest building in the western US designed and occupied solely as a daily newspaper publisher. The Times, now owned by the Chicago based Tribune Company, is Los Angeles' major newspaper.

    I didn't get inside to see the Globe Lobby but if you should get a chance you'll find 10-foot-high murals painted in 1935 by Hugo Ballin, who also painted the Griffith Observatory rotunda and the mural in the Edison building. The lobby also has an historical exhibit from the first 100 years of The Times.

    Located at 1st and Spring Streets in downtown Los Angeles
