HossC, thanks for finding the photos of pre-Schaber's 618-622 S. Broadway.


-so glad the old (1911) Orpheum building is still with us. (notice that one of the bronze sconces is missing in the B/W photo above)

interior: Orpheum (later Palace) Theater.

I've never seen side balconies arranged quite like that. It's almost like they were tacked on.



The beauty shop seems to be getting top billing in this 1945 photo.
