OK, here's a mystery location that I don't know the answer to.

I found it on a website honoring the child actress Lassie Lou.



"The Helen Holmes Serial (1924)"



younghollywood

As you can see it shows a woman and a child (Helen Holmes? and li'l Lassie Lou) on an old wooden tressle. There is a small settlement on the far side of the bridge.

Super-duper LARGE.

I spy a doggy too.



Here are the episodes if anyone wants to check them out.


imdb

........................................................................................


these episodes are actually from an earlier serial, Hazards of Helen....(Lassie Lou wasn't born until 1920)
^^^

"Perils of Pauline" genre was very common back then. Many imitators. Villains in black suits, top hats twirling their moustashes. Dogs often to the rescue. Rin Tin Tin and later Lassie etc.

When I was a kid, we sometimes went to Seal Beach or nearby H B. You almost always got tar on your feet. Tar balls were in the sand from offshore oil activities. My mom carried a little tin of lighter fluid to get the tar off when we left. Couldn't get tar in the car.

I think Webs of Steel deserves a hard look, based on its description at
Amazon
:
Star Helen Holmes performed her own stunts; one involving a runaway train speeding toward a child trapped on a trestle.
Also, the cover picture shows her wearing a big hat.

From Necessary Storms:
In 1925 they made five features. One, Webs of Steel, is one of the more unusual films of the era ─ the Helen in this movie is the Helen of old: strong, intelligent, fearless. She rescues a child and a puppy on a railroad trestle while wearing high heels.
