Chaplin in the warehouse district 100 years ago

Postby John Bengtson » Thu Feb 04, 2016 12:15 am

Charlie filmed this scene from Work (1915) over 100 years ago in the old produce warehouse section of downtown. Thanks to the amazing clarity of the Essanay Blu-ray restoration from Flicker Alley, we can now see where he filmed, less than a mile from the Bradbury Mansion studio where he made the rest of the movie.
