Prop Plaza Universal Studios Hollywood

Once upon a time at Universal Studios there was a prop plaza featuring large objects from Land of the Giants as well as vehicles you could pose in with a rolling screen and also styrofoam rocks you could pick up. It was a fun place to hang out and play, as well as many a souvenir photograph was taken at the site. First up is the Stagecoach with the scrim rolling behind it.

Next up are a set of books featuring recent movies released by Universal. Such classics as Jaws, the Hindenburg and Earthquake.

This photo was not loading initially, but it is a great image of the prop telephone.

I remember how much fun I had in that area!

I've never seen those books before. "The Hindenburg" came out in 1975, and I don't think it was much of a hit, so these photos must be from around then.

Loved this place! When I worked on the lot, and PP had been closed for years, I used to drive up there in the golf cart and soak in/mourn its glorious emptiness.
