Here's an advertisement for the Los Angeles Pressed Brick Company from the February 1925 edition of 'Architect and Engineer' which I found in a book called City Center to Regional Mall: Architecture, the Automobile, and Retailing in Los Angeles, 1920-1950 by Richard W. Longstreth.

Flyingwedge included pictures of the C.H. Frost/Haig M. Prince Building recently when writing about the Millar Block/Roanoke Building in post #20376. Here's another color picture from HDL that's dated 4/20/59. It shows the Prince Building and the Roanoke Building near the end of their lives.
NB. I've removed all the dirt from the sky.
