Kingswell Street is where it all began for Walt Disney Productions. When Walt arrived in Los Angeles in 1923, he rented a room from his Uncle Robert at 4406 Kingswell, and for a few weeks that fall used the garage as a makeshift studio.

Later, Walt and Roy rented their first commercial property at 4651 Kingswell, and then expanded to 4649 before locating to the Hyperion Studio in January, 1926.

It was also at the Kingswell property that Roy Disney operated the camera that photographed the early Alice Comedies.

Kingswell Camera is located in the “Elysian Arcade.” Elysian Park, located just north of the original Disney Studio, was the first public park established in Los Angeles.
