Mixbook is a free online service for creating and sharing the world’s most customizable photo books, cards and calendars so who better to explore L.A. with?!

The Last Book Store is a most see when in downtown L.A.
We also went to architectural landmark Bradbury Building located at 304 South Broadway at West 3rd Street. The building was commissioned by Los Angeles gold-mining millionaire Lewis L. Bradbury and constructed by draftsman George Wyman from the original design by Sumner Hunt. It appears in many works of fiction and has been the site of many movie like Blade Runner and television shoots and music videos. Part of Janet Jackson‘s 1989 film short Janet Jackson’s Rhythm Nation 1814 was shoot there as well.
In 1984, downtown visionary Ira Yellin, a successful developer with an academic interest in urban planning and historical preservation, bought Grand Central Market and adjacent properties including the Million Dollar Theater, as well as the landmark Bradbury Building across the street.
Mom and I turned in our walking radios and went to rested our feet. The tour was great. I learned a lot about L.A. and it’s history.
