More Pre-WDP Burbank

The following images were sent to me by Steven Worth of the ASIFA Archives, who graciously allows me to post them here. They were taken by the husband of ink & paint lady Helen Jordan.

The first image shows Buena Vista Street in 1938 - with grazing cows! Note the buildings: they are also seen in my yesterday's post! Then an image of the building site in 1938 and a near complete studio in 1939, and the last image shows the plowed fields along Alameda on the plot that would later become St. Joseph's Hospital. Cool, huh?

I just linked to you from the Archive blog and added some more info- a magazine article on the building of the studio.

See ya

This is a really great blog.

Thank you for sharing all this stuff and keeping alive in our mind from where we belong as animation professionals or just passionate.
