newspaper buildings

I'm looking for examples of unusual newspaper buildings--extant or not.  Examples would be the Mexico (Missouri) Ledger Building which has a oversized depiction of the paper's front page on its facade.  Or the Dallas Morning News building with a large tablet on its facade engraved with a quote about the value of journalism. 

Thanks in advance for any suggestions you might have.

The award is intended to provide research assistance of up to $2,000 for a junior faculty member who has not yet achieved tenure. The proposed research project must be related to media history, but all methodological approaches are welcome.
