1938 view from union station construction site looking south west towards civic center

the plaza is visible far left center. The Brunswig Building is visible behind the plaza with pico house just to the left of the plaza.

The "It's in the Examiner sign, which was located at the entrance to the broadway tunnel is visible just above the brunswig building.

the grand central hotel is center

here's a 1950 image looking north east from city hall at union station. all the buildings in front of union station on Alameda are being demolished to extend the plaza to the station, (not to mention a little thing known as the 101)

The huge building out on the horizon in East Los Angeles, is the Los Angeles County General Hospital, which can be quite noirish especially at night

and not to mention creepy if you need a surgical proceedure

California State Library

It looks like the engine room of the star ship enterprise..........(or maybe those are just the controls to raise and lower that humongous window shade)
