This George Wyman creation cost over $500,000 to build… in 1893. Talking about its marble floors, open cage elevators, and skylight ceiling cannot translate how neat it is inside. It’s no wonder Hollywood has made this building a set in several films including, but not limited to, Blade Runner, Chinatown, and (500) Days of Summer. It’s still in use, so visitors are only allowed on the first floor. But, the Los Angeles Conservancy offers tours of the building on Saturdays, for more info check here: http://www.laconservancy.org/tours/downtown/bradbury.php
