Bradbury Building

“"futuristic" architecture for 1893”

The Bradbury Building, built in 1893 is considered as one of the finest architectural masterpieces in Southern California. The dramatic central court made of glazed brick walls, ornamental cast iron made in France, tiling, stairs of Belgian marble and polished wood railings is flooded in the light from the huge skylight five stories above. The history is as dramatic as the architecture itself. Lewis Bradbury was a mining millionaire turned real estate developer when, in 1892, he decided to construct a five story building at Third and Broadway. The plans developed by a well known architect, Sumner Hunt disappointed Mr. Bradbury who wanted something unique. Believing in a potential of an obscure draftsman, he asked 32-year old George Wyman to create a design. At first, Wyman declined the offer, but after debating the matter, he decided to get an advice from his brother, who was then...dead for six years. The forerunner of the quija board wrote down a "spirit" message that read: "Take Bradbury Building. It will make you famous".
