Building History

Los Angeles architect Robert Brown Young (1855-1914), designed several buildings for the real estate investor James Boon Lankershim (1850-1931), this being one of the first. The Los Angeles Herald stated in its issue of 05/10/1891: "J.B. Lankershim, at Seventh and Alameda streets, will soon have a brick block costing $40,000, which will be used by the Pacific Fruit Company. R.B. Young is the architect." (See "The Building Boom," Los Angeles Herald, 05/10/1891, p. 8.)
