National Parks Under Attack
This Web site doesn't like to take political stands, but now it is necessary.

The current administration wants to reduce the size and number of National Monuments and allow oil drilling and mining in National Parks for the first time since the system was established. If you prefer trees and streams to oil wells and pipelines, contact your representatives in Washington NOW and tell them to protect these Crown Jewels of America.

Places Earth extends sympathies and hopes to both the people fighting to restore their lives in Puerto Rica and to those who’s lives have been taken or disrupted by the shooting in Las Vegas. Also to hurricane victims in Texas, Florida, and other areas of the Gulf region. Also to the fire victims in California. So many disasters in short time, all made worse by climate change.

State Parks, Historic Sites, and Museums need your help.

Throughout the country, state parks, historic sites, museums, and similar institutions are struggling to continue operating. Because of general financial problems, many of these institutions are operating on a reduced schedule or in danger of closing. Some are being forced to sell off artifacts and property. Many will not weather these hard times without your help.

Places Earth urges everyone to support these vital and important public resources any way you can. Please donate your treasure, time, and talent. Write to your governor and other elected officials telling them to find a way to keep state parks open. It will be your loss.

20th Century Fox Studios is one of the major studios in the Los Angeles area. Sadly, its large back lot was sold off to development in the 1960s.
Below are history plates from most of the stages at 20th Century Fox Studios. Stage 1 doesn't seem to have a history plate. The stages are not numbered sequencially and some numbers are no longer used, so some numbers are missing, such as 7.
The information below is taken from the plates. Any inaccuracies are also on the plates. There are gaps in the dates listed but it seems unlikely the stages sat empty for several years. There are also often gaps between stage built dates and the first film listed and nothing updated since the plates were installed.
