THE NELSON STUDIOS IN LUCERNE VALLEY

Continuing along a road filled with forgotten memories, we came upon an old abandoned movie studio and had to stop!!  With the exception of a few dilapidated structures in the distance, this water tower and the studio gates seemed to be the only surviving remnants.  From what I could discover, if you were to travel back to the 1920’s you would have come upon an entirely different scene – a scene bustling with all of the activities one would associate with the making of a silent film!

Can you imagine the electricity as the actors passed through these gates to shoot their scenes?  Imagine…

That’s what a scene such as this one causes me to do…imagine!

I thought it to be quite interesting to discover a rather new chain locking the entrance to the studio grounds – especially when you could easily walk around the deteriorating gates to enter.

As time goes by, history is oftentimes left in its wake.

  1. I love the composition of the first photo! (my grandfather used the desert as a subject for painting to all the time, hence my attraction to this theme) I think I would like to see it in B&W, or the color version without the Photoshop effects.

    This is another place I never knew existed. How fun that you were able to go see it! ~ Lynda
