THE BRADBURY BUILDING

photo 5The Bradbury Building resides on the corner of Broadway and W 3rd St. in Los Angeles. Built in 1893, it is one of the oldest buildings still standing in Downtown L.A. Lewis L. Bradbury was the gold-mining and real estate millionaire who commissioned the building. The outside of the building is a fairly plain red brick, but the interior is a jewel, with ornate wrought iron banisters and elevators, and a beautiful glass ceiling that fills the space with natural light. The building is famous for being featured in many Hollywood films, including Blade Runner, Chinatown, and The Artist.
