Romance of the Redwoods: Scene from Film — Stagecoach

A stagecoach scene from "Romance of the Redwoods." The Daily Surf reported that Big Trees (Henry Cowell State Park) and Felton would be used for the filming:

"The outfit was a big one and was unloaded at the Big Trees, where scenes of this drama will also be enacted. The stage coach will be used in typical early day happenings portrayed in this play. They are also on the sand hills beyond Felton today, a spot selected by Mr. Zimmerman. A lot of horses and wild west riders are expected for the play."
Santa Cruz Daily Surf, March 16, 1917, p.8
