We Tour the Los Angeles Times
 Early Group
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.
  Times Motto
The Times building was opened in 1935 and is a monument to both newspapers and the city..
  Times Online Our tour guide, Darrell Kunitomi, told us that 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.
