The revised nameplate of 1913 shows the building on fire.

The 1913 nameplate also shows the new building on the site of the old one at 1st and Broadway.

April 8, 1910: I thought it would be interesting to look at how the October 1910 bombing changed The Times’ nameplate. The Times’ eagle, which was on the roof of both buildings, remains on display in the Globe Lobby, but it has acquired a new base since the 2007 exhibition at the Huntington Library, Art Collections and Botanical Garden, above.

This story about a women's boycott of Kosher butchers in New York obviously has nothing to do with The Times Building, but I found it fascinating.

    The Los Angeles Times. Long may it live.
    Especially keen in these times of faltering newspapers, like the once respectable San Francisco Chronicle.

    Larry, Forgive me if you’ve already read this, but the ’08 book American Lightning by Howard Blum covers the dynamiting of the Times and the trial of the bombers. The history of the novelistic cast of characters is fascinating, the style hackneyed at times. My thumbnail recommendation.
