A Los Angeles Times article dated June 6, 1930 partially reads, "Attended by scores of officials and employees, and marking the thirty-fourth anniversary of the incorporation of the West Side Lighting Company, predecessor of the Southern California Edison Company, the great corner-stone of the Edison company's limit-height office building at Fifth street and Grand avenue was laid yesterday by John B. Miller, chairman of the board of the company. The cost of the new building, now well on the way to completion and which will be one of the most imposing structures on the West Coast, together with the value of the site, is estimated at approximately $3,575,000." Mr. Miller is the gentleman on the right, hat in one hand and holding a silver trowel in the other.
