Lubin Photos

The Case:

History Detectives examines century old photos that may have captured the dawn of American movie-making – nearly 3000 miles from Hollywood.

One of the books holds many Western scenes, including a cowboy character captioned, "Herbert Lubin." Other captions refer to the Siegmund Lubin Studios.

Who was Siegmund Lubin? And was Herbie Lubin a movie star?

History Detectives goes on an excursion through an early movie mogul’s dramatic rise and fall.
