Not too many theatres got their interior on a postcard. Here we get this early view of the theatre that opened in 1910 and is still on Broadway. The auditorium is now used for storage but except for the missing seats is relatively unchanged. The Alfred Rosenheim designed building in later years was called the Cameo Theatre. The card appears in Brent Dickerson's fine Broadway Part 3 section of his A Visit To Old Los Angeles.
