The Ducommun Metals & Supply Corporation, 4890 S. Alameda

The building shown above was built in 1941 and designed by the still-extant firm of Albert C. Martin. We've seen other A. C. Martin buildings here, ones as varied as St. Vincent's Church at Adams and Figueroa, the Million Dollar Theater, City Hall, and Water & Power buildings downtown, May Co. Miracle Mile, and, discussed most recently, the Eastland Shopping Center. Established in 1849 and referred to in some sources as California's oldest company, Ducommun has had an interesting history and exists to this day as Ducommun Incorporated of Long Beach:
