The Garrick and the Morosco
A postcard view looking north on Broadway acoss 8th St. gives us a bit of the Garrick Theatre at the bottom. The Garrick had opened as the Hyman Theatre in 1910. That lot at 8th & Broadway is now the site of the 1927 Tower Theatre. That's the Chapman Building (1912, Los Angeles Investment Company Building, now loft apartments), on the north side of 8th. with the Morosco (1913, now the Globe Theatre) beyond. The card is from the Brent Dickerson collection and appears in his "Later Around Broadway and 8th" tour on A Visit To Old Los Angeles.
