This is a reproduction of the California Building at the 1893 World’s Columbian Exposition in Chicago.

The structure was the plant of the Los Angeles Examiner, a morning Hearst-chain newspaper. Visible from the street on the Broadway side were five giant presses, each with a capacity of 32,000 forty-eight- page papers an hour.
