Edison National Historic Site, NJThis replica movie studio symbolizes the early motion picture industry. Called the "revolving photograph building" when constructed in 1892-93, the studio was soon nicknamed the "Black Maria" by Edison's employees - probably because it resembled police vehicles of the day. The original Black Maria stood near today's water tower.
