A lone construction worker, along with the "bucket" of an excavator, can be seen removing bricks from a construction site on Weller St., north of 2nd St. in Little Tokyo. Approximately 50,000 vintage bricks, made by the Los Angeles Paving Brick Company, along with vintage curbing and hand-hewn granite drains, were salvaged. Workmen for the Damon Construction Company skimmed pavement off the bricks first, then lifted and shook the bricks out and freed them of excess mortar. These bricks were then delivered to Heritage Square to be recreated into historic-cultural paving. Heritage Square Museum is located on the east side of the Pasadena Freeway north of downtown Los Angeles, in Montecito Heights. Photograph dated August 1980.
