While I can't prove it, I think that the current courthouse (Stanley Mosk Courthouse) has a piece of the "Red Sandstone Courthouse" of which we have frequently seen in this thread. it is located on the Hill Street side, to the left of the steps. The stone is definitely red sandstone and there must be a connection, especially since they moved the bronze clock hands and numbers from the first courthouse to the red sandstone and then to Stanley Mosk as a nod to history.
