Perfect light... here's a Los Angeles HABS project just transmitted to the Historic American Buildings Survey for the Library of Congress this week. HABS-CA-2952-B.
The Los Angeles County Medical Examiner-Coroner Building is part of the LAC+USC Medical Center campus in Lincoln Heights. This spectacular building was the original LA County hospital – built in 1878 – it later became affiliated with the University of Southern California School of Medicine in 1885.
In 1878 the Los Angeles Hospital had 100 beds and 6 staff members, the main hospital administration building at 1104 North Mission Rd. is now used by the County Medical Examiner-Coroner. I was working on a documentation of the LAC+USC Women's and Children's Hospital next door when I saw the light on this building from the middle floor of the adjacent parking garage, I just couldn't resist.
