We Tour the Los Angeles Times
 LAT Group
We are about to begin our Los Angeles Times tour. We're across the street from Los Angeles City Hall.
 Globe Lobby
Once inside the building, we stopped in the Globe Lobby, the ornate entrance to the main 1935 newspaper building.

.

Spring Street
The Globe Lobby includes a Los Angeles history display. These MC101s put themselves onto Spring Street, circa 1915.

 

L.A. Times Presses

We learned that the printing presses (which are many decades newer than this model) are no longer at the Downtown location.
 Newsroom Tour
Our tour guide, Darrell Kunitomi, showed us all around the newsroom and other offices. We are in the newspaper's library where the reporters do background research for their stories.
Group in Newsroom
The MC101s had an excellent opportunity to see how a major metropolitan newspaper operates, and to ask questions about it.

On to tour walking tour of Downtown.
