Hollywood Studios, Postcard History Series

Just after the turn of the 20th century, the motion picture industry moved to the West Coast, and the largest land of make-believe was created in Hollywood, California. From the silent-era beginnings of primitive, open-air stages to the fabled back lots of the studios� heyday, Hollywood Studios presents a bygone era of magical moviemaking in rare postcards. Assembled from the author�s private collection, these images from the Chaplin Studios to Metro-Goldwyn Mayer depict an insider�s look back at the dream factories known as the Hollywood studios.
