The first Los Angeles County Courthouse was built in 1891 and is also as known as the "Red Sandstone Courthouse." Located at Spring and Temple, this building served as the courthouse until 1933, when it sustained damage in the Long Beach earthquake, and was demolished in 1936.
Angelenos pass by on May 13, 1936, as the Los Angeles County Courthouse is razed, behind a statue of Stephen M. White.
