by Carlyle Robinson, Liberty, 1933
(reprinted in Liberty in 1972)
Below left is a photo of one of the buildings at the Lone Star studio where Chaplin filmed The Immigrant (A Dog's Life was filmed at his brand new studio on La Brea). Note how the windows (and the building itself) are very similar to the ones behind Charlie at right.

I'm not sure if the Chaplin Archive has an actual date for this photo because I'm curious how it ever came to be associated with A Dog's Life--possibly because Chaplin spent several days and nights cutting that film as well. However, at this point I'm convinced that this photo was taken after The Immigrant (or at least during the Mutual period).
*Robinson was press agent from c. 1917-1932.
