Random Photos Found in a Box. Travels Across Time and Distance.

The first one is an interesting relic of early Hollywood. A photo taken on a studio set, when my grandmother visited her cousin who was a silent film actress. This would have been before my grandparents were married — before 1920, at least! I’ve photocopied the back as well.  The handwriting says,  Compliments of Universal Film Co.  Feb. 14, 19?? (handwriting unreadable). My friend, Anna, at Chicago Film Archives, found this article that mentions Universal Film Co.
