Located at 1243 Trenton Street, the Mediterranean/Churrigueresque structure was designed by Morgan, Walls & Clements and built in 1925. When the Los Angeles Evening Herald and Express merged in 1931, it became the Herald-Express Building. After the Examiner merged with the Los Angeles Herald-Express in 1962, it was demolished sometime between the mid and late 1960s.
