We Tour the Los Angeles Times
Times Group Su08
We are about to begin our Los Angeles Times tour. These early arrivals are in the historic Globe Lobby at First and Spring streets.
L.A. Times Presses

There is a historical newspaper exhibit in the Globe Lobby. We learned that the printing presses (which are many decades newer than this model) are no longer at the Downtown location.
Philippes Su08
These MC101s started the day with breakfast at Philippe's, which has been in Downtown Los Angeles since 1912.
Darrell
Our tour guide, Darrell Kunitomi, started with a discussion of the Times' place in Los Angeles history.
Pages
Darrell showed us all around the newsroom and other offices. We are in the food section.
Newsroom
The MC101s had an excellent opportunity to see how a major metropolitan newspaper operates, and to ask questions about it.
Times Online
Of course, the paper version of the Times is quickly being supplanted by the online version. Our tour ended with a discussion of whether the future of newspapers is completely online.

On to tour walking tour of Downtown.
