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.
