    INTRODUCTION

    The Little Tokyo Historic District preserves the last concentra-tion of buildings in Little Tokyo that pre-date World War II. For-merly the commercial heart of Little Tokyo, the district symbol-izes the cultural and social history of the Japanese-American community in Los Angeles. The district begins at 120 San Pedro Street (formerly Union Church), continues south to East First Street, and runs the length of the north side of East First Street, ending at Central Avenue. The buildings are typical ex-amples of Los Angeles commercial architecture from the first quarter of the 20th century. Ranging in height from one to four stories, all the buildings are masonry construction. While their front facades have been slightly modified over time, their rear and side facades remain almost unaltered. The facades on East First Street front the sidewalk edge. They exemplify the features and ornamentation of commercial architecture of their era. Eleven of 13 buildings in the district are close to their origi-nal form at the beginning of the 1900s and only one seems not to fit into the context of the historic district.

    These guidelines document the beginning of the restoration and rehabilitation process for the six buildings from 315 to 339 East First Street. The improvements defined are specifically for signage, awnings, and lighting. All other modifications are im-plied for the purpose of adding to the historic character of the district. Improvements in the guidelines are meant to improve the quality of the pedestrian and commercial environment while preserving the communitys architectural and historic resourc-es. The guideline will illustrate significant architectural features of the six buildings to facilitate the placement and sizing of the new signage, awnings, and lighting. These guidlines also serve as historic design criteria for future improvements in the Little Tokyo Historic District. As a reference point, all the images pre-sented in this guideline are from the districts historical dates of significance (1905-19401). All architectural restoration or reha-bilitation of buildings within the district will be based on images from this time period.
