The Richardsonian Romanesque Times Building occupied a site on Old Fort Street, later known as Broadway. The Times began publication in 1881.

John Krempel designed a three-story office building addition, located on the site of Times-Mirror Company Building #1, c. 1910; a bomb blast destroyed part of the Los Angeles Times's building at 1st Street and Broadway on 10/01/1910; the explosion was attributed to two labor unionists, James and Joseph McNamara, who resented the Times's rabidly anti-union editorial positions.
