|Here we are on our Los Angeles Times tour.
As always, Darrell Kunitomi (far right) is our very able tour guide. But there is more to tell about this day of Downtown field trips. We will start at the beginning.
|As grand as the Times is, there is only one way to start a full
day of Downtown field trips: with breakfast at Phillippe's.
Phillippe's has been Downtown for more than 90 years.
It is always good to meet with some MC101s in a less formal setting than the classroom typically allows.
|It is a pleasant morning Downtown. This will be appreciated later when
we do a walking tour of Downtown.
In this photo, we are just outside the editorial offices of the Times.
||Once inside the Times, we are led through what seems like endless hallways in this sprawling complex. This is the test kitchen where recipes are tried out for articles in the Food Section.|
||One of our stops is the main lobby, where there is a fine display of
Los Angeles history and the Times' role in shaping it.
This is Downtown as it looked in 1916 ... if it had had Spring 2004 model MC101 students standing in front of it.
|Soon, we are off the the newsroom...|
||... Which certainly has a personality of its own.|
