CAPITOL RECORDS BUILDING

The Capitol Records Building near Hollywood and Vine was designed by architect Welton Becket in 1956 to resemble a stack of vinyl 45 records. It is one of the most recognizable structures in the city. The 13-story tower is on the Los Angeles Register of Historic Places.

At night, the blinking light on top of the tower spells out the word "Hollywood" in Morse code. For Christmas, tree-shaped lights adorn the top of the tower.

You can't really visit the Capitol Records Building unless you have business there, but you can certainly see it and photograph it from the street from Vine Street, just north of Hollywood Boulevard.

Welton Becket also designed the three original buildings of the Los Angeles Music Center.
