Two weeks ago new @latimes owner @drpatsoonshiong said he will move the newsroom to El Segundo.

The next day I led an off-the-cuff @Twitter tour of the historic #DTLA HQ being left behind. More than 650,000 people followed along.

Here it is, in one post palewi.re/posts/2018/04/…
Reposting the material to my personal blog allows me to better archive the material. And clean up the many typos I littered on the tour via my smartphone keyboard.

I continue to be blown away by the response. I did not expect anyone to care when I started.
Since then I've continued to document as much of the @latimes building as I can before we go.

I've been lucky enough to inhabit and explore the interlocking buildings at 1st and Spring for over a decade.

I'd like to share it with you. It's a beautiful day in #DTLA. Shall we take a wander?
The buildings wer constructed and built by the Chandler Family.

The different sections of the block have different cornerstones set by succeeding generations.
The lobby at 2nd and Spring with it's beautiful fixtures, including -30-, the traditional newspaper code for a story's end, hung over the exit.
