London's Capital Records



London's Capital Records

Possible twin of the Capitol Records building in Los Angeles

Location: One Kemble Street, WC2B 4TS

Description: While the skyline of Hollywood is largely unspectacular, this landmark is one of the few exceptions. This 13-story building was built in 1954 and is still the headquarters of Capitol Records...

What what what - well it could be - just behind Kingsway lies this homage to LAs finest. If you look at it long enough on a hot sunny day whilst listening to loud rock music...you'll find yourself whisked away to warmer, cooler climates and the Capitol Records building in LA.

If buildings could mate, these two might well be twins.
