After Recent Fire -- May 6, 2014
This photo from the 19-April-1913 Moving Picture World, shows the "Scene at Los Angeles Studio of Universal Film Manufacturing Company after recent fire. In brick vault, which shows in left-hand corner of picture, was stored $100,000 worth of cameras and films, all of which were saved."
From the same issue:
"What's one man's loss is another's gain. In the recent fire at the Universal company's Hollywood offices, about $10,000 worth of photoplay scripts which had been accepted and paid for were destroyed. This means that the company is in urgent need of scripts. Business is now being transacted in a temporary rough-board building. Meanwhile a square block of property has been obtained directly across Sunset Boulevard and new offices and studios are to be erected there."
