End of an era in Torrance

January 31, 2009 |  9:46 am

It's the end of an era in Torrance, where the Daily Breeze put out its last paper at the landmark Torrance Boulevard location before moving. The newspaper's headquarters will be replaced with a medical office and condos:

The Daily Breeze has produced the final newspaper at its Torrance Boulevard home of more than 40 years. Today's edition was the last put together at the plant with the distinctive blue-tile facade at Torrance and Palos Verdes boulevards. The $2 million building was state-of-the-art when it was dedicated on Jan. 26, 1965. "This building holds countless memories for the thousands of employees who have worked here over the last 44 years," Editor Phillip Sanfield said. "We've produced about 16,000 daily editions of the Breeze from these offices. That's a lot of news and a lot of effort."
