Built in 1888, the 5-story Vickrey-Brunswig Building first housed the Eastside Bank. Less than ten years later, it was purchased by the F. W. Braun Drug company for its wholesale pharmaceutical operations, and in 1907, one of the F. W. Braun Drug company partners, Lucien Napoleon Brunswig, took over the structure and added his name to the top of the building. In 1930, the building was purchased by the County of Los Angeles and became an office building.
