Universal Studios Hollywood
In the early
days of Universal City, a large Zoo featured as a major attraction.
The zoo housed animals used in Universal pictures and was quite a novelty
for the visiting masses. In 1915, it was the largest privately-owned menagerie in the USA.
The zoo was located on the backlot between what is now the Courthouse and Park Lake.
