Times Building Bombed by Labor Radicals – 1910

1910 Times Bombing

A photograph showing the bombed-out ruins of the Los Angeles Times Building has been listed on EBay. Bidding starts at $5.

By the way, I am tardy in writing about Lew Irwin’s book on The Times bombing. Lew is a longtime newsman who was one of the few white reporters who paid any attention at all to what was going on in Los Angeles’ African American community in the 1950s. In “Deadly Times,” Lew has produced an extremely readable account of the incident and it’s well worth a look.  I am way overdue on writing about it. So many stories, only one Larry Harnisch.

I wrote extensively about the bombing when the L.A. Daily Mirror was at latimes.com. You can find those entries here.

    Lew’s book is a really entertaining and fact-filled book about the nefarious guys behind the bombing of the L.A.Times. Recommend it highly!!
