Way Back When: The “Flying A” was Flying High in Santa Barbara in 1914
By Betsy J. Green
The folks from the “Flying A” studio were filming in various locations such as stores on State Street, the Channel Islands, and all around the county and beyond. Many interior scenes were also shot in the company’s large glass studio. The studio was located on the northwest corner of Mission and Chapala streets. A few of the original buildings still remain, most notably the building shown in the top left of the photo.
