The Walt Disney studio in the 1930s on 2719 Hyperion Avenue. Did you know? The Disney brothers put a $400 deposit down on this formerly empty lot on July 6, 1925. This where Steamboat Willie, The Silly Symphonies, Snow White, Pinocchio & Fantasia (started production) was made before they moved over to Burbank in early 1940. Today if you visit, stands a Gelson’s (grocery) Market.
