The Times Eagle [Updated]


Dec. 5, 1891: The Times Eagle is installed on the roof of Times Building No. 2 at First Street and Broadway on Dec. 5, 1891, after being made by the J.L. Mott Iron Works of Chicago and brought to Los Angeles by rail.

“And so from this lofty perch I send greeting and goodwill to all who pass beneath; but let it not be forgotten that the eagle sees in the night as well as the day, and that his vision can pierce the drawn curtains of a cab at 8 a.m. as easily as [Verona] Jarbeau can ‘wink the other eye.’ ”

[Update: A previous version of this post gave the incorrect date of Dec. 5, 1896]

 Dec. 6, 1891, Times Eagle
