My mother was 4 years old when she, her mother and her brother were in the crowd that gathered to watch the Burning of Atlanta scene at MGM studios, and I would like to see if there are any photographs of them. Does anybody know where I might find photos of the crowd during that event? If so, could you please email me at artmichaelis at hotmail.com .
Thank you!

He has the world's largest privately owned GWTW collection, he sold a bunch of his stuff at an auction several years ago in NY, Christie's auction house handled it. I've been friends with him for years through my collecting.
He may have some photo's (I know he sold a ton) or he may know who you could contact...
I will email you with his email address...Is the address listed above correct?
