Photograph of the external view of the Armory Building, on the corner of Eighth Street and Spring Street, Los Angeles, ca.1908. The castle-like building stands about three-stories tall. An American flag stands on top of the tower (corner of building). The tower, like the rest of the building, has battlements all the way around it. Buttresses with pyramid-like spires reinforce the building's structure at intervals all around the building. Other buildings and residential houses are visible in the background. Horse-drawn carriages can be seen parked on the streets. A dozen men stand around at the corner of the street. Utility lines line the streets.; Legible signs include: "The Evening News 25 cents a month", "Copeland", "Armory N.C.C.", "Los Angeles Transfer Co.", "Automobiles repairing and garage".
