BRADBURY BUILDING

The unprepossessing brown brick exterior of the Bradbury Building (304 Broadway at West 3rd Street) in Downtown LA, doesn't hint at its spectacular interior. Unlike the buildings on the previous pages, this is not one that you can appreciate on a drive by. You have to take the time to park and go inside, where intricately carved wood and wrought iron filigree are lit from above by a domed atrium.

The building was designed originally by Sumner Hunt and embellished upon by one of his draftsmen, George Wyman, as a commission for gold-mining millionaire Lewis L. Bradbury.  Bradbury died before the building was finished, but his inspiration, based on an 1887 science fiction novel, has become a National Historic Landmark. It is the oldest commercial building remaining in Downtown LA.

You can walk through the Bradbury Building on your own and take a look or learn more about it on the LA Conservancy's Historic Downtown Walking Tour.
