Where is the clock now?

Per the LAPL: "W. J. Martin stands next to the clock formerly
mounted on the old Los Angeles County Courthouse on
March 2, 1936. He was a supervisor before the newly-
demolished courthouse was built."

Per the LAPL: "Officials presenting the old courthouse clock to the Los Angeles County Museum on
March 2, 1932 [sic]. Left to right are: Hugh A. Thatcher, P. F. Cogswell, R. W. Pridham, Henry W.
Wright, James Hay, W. J. Martin, J. S. Dodge, Fred J. Beatty, W. A. Bryan (director of the museum),
J. J. Hamilton, J. R. Quinn, J. Don Wahaffey, V. E. Hinshaw, F. E. Woodley, Dr. J. W. Bovard, and
Frank Shaw."

Per the LAPL: "The huge clock that once towered over
the civic center from atop the old red sandstone
courthouse at Temple Street and Broadway is on display
on March 20, 1974 in the lobby of the Criminal Courts
Building. The clock is part of an exhibit detailing the
history of the civic center growth from 1891 to 1973."

Sometime after the 1933 Long Beach
earthquake, before the temporary hip roof on
the shortened tower and total demolition.
