What travelers say:

There are quite a lot of small attractions near the central market. Many netizens in this building like to take pictures, and that angel train station. Breakfast is bought coffee at BLUE瓶 and eaten breakfast in the opposite market. It is perfect. After breakfast, stop by the building to see the wonderful design that will appear in the movie, is also very convenient. The building is the blue bottle, although the gate is closed, but do not shoot, bravely push it away. Walking through the dark aisle you can see the scenes in the photos and movies, very unique architectural style, very retro and very tolerant. Some staff will tell you that the photographer can only use mobile phone, but the photographer can use camera. I don't understand why this is so. But because the light inside is really not very good, the mobile phone is really not good to see, the light is not enough, it is difficult to produce films, need to be processed later. The building was built in 1893, from inside to outside is Italian Renaissance style. What most amazes me is the iron sculptures and the special elevators of the building, as if they were in the old European castle. Because there are people in the building, talk and walk and keep your voice down. Usually you can visit and take pictures in 10 minutes.

Additional Information

Introduction

The Bradbury Building is an impressive architectural landmark located in Los Angeles, California. Named after Lewis L. Bradbury, a mining millionaire, the Bradbury Building is one of the most impressive Victorian buildings left in Los Angeles. Lewis L. Bradbury commissioned the building in 1892 and the structure was completed in 1893. Bradbury wanted his building to be unconventional and hired draftsman George Wyman as a designer. Wyman was reluctant to take the offer at first but a conversation with his dead brother through a Ouija board changed his mind. Wyman's design was inspired by the 1887 science fiction book Looking Backward by Edward Bellamy. The final result was an architectural masterpiece that includes oak paneling, wrought-iron railings, open-cage elevators and a glass roof.
