WAITING IN LINE AT UNIVERSAL

CHERISHING OUR VALLEY          2013

Very soon after its founding, Universal Pictures became an important tourist stop for Los Angeles visitors.

 Not long after the founding of Universal Pictures  in 1912, Carl Laemmle and his partners recognized that they could make additional income by giving tours of the studio. The oldest movie studio in America (and, the fourth oldest in the world, helped to earn the San Fernando Valley the right to call itself "the heart of the entertainment capital of the world."
Universal City is one of the six independent cities, along with suburbs of Los Angeles, served by The Museum of the San Fernando Valley.
