Product Description

original c. 1930's sepia toned gelatin silver print of the massive marquee and exterior facade of the westside chicago symphony (non-extant) theater built in 1928-9 by architect william p. whitney. the 2000 seat spanish revival style theater was operated by the warner brothers until it finally closed in 1951. after years of neglect and abandonment, the building fell into significant disrepair to the point where demolition seemed inevitable. the theater was brought down in 1965. the vintage print is quite rare, due in part to the lack of known visual or photographic documentation pertaining to this particular theater. photographed by the commercial firm of kaufmann & fabry. stamped on the print verso. measures approx. 8 by 10 inches.
