The Burbank Theatre
Not in Burbank but on Main St. downtown. It was built for Dr. David Burbank who was also the namesake of the San Fernando Valley town.
Here we get a colorized postcard view of a c.1905 photo. It appears on Brent Dickerson's Main Street (Part Two) page of his Visit To Old Los Angeles. Check it out for a nice tour down the street. It's just one of many great adventures on his website. See our page on the Burbank Theatre (now demolished) for lots more about the building.
