LA history

I found this site a few weeks ago, that has free walking tour PDF maps. Looks like some interesting historical places on the maps for different areas as well.
http://www.angelswalkla.org/walks.html

If you're into historical buildings and architecture, this looks cool from the itunes store http://laconservancy.org/tours/tours_selfguided.php

I am staying in the downtown area this time, so I am interested in checking out some of the surrounding buildings.
