If there is one thing I have increasingly become fascinated with over the years its theatres. Having spent a fair amount of time in my simple high school auditorium it amazes me when I see the detail work in some of the theatres built in the early 1900s. In my opinion it’s safe to say that Detroit has some of, if not thee, the most beautiful theatres in the country. We’ve preserved but also destroyed, or re-purposed, these masterpieces, many flanking our downtown streets. What is your favorite?
Take a look at the photograph entitled “Wreathed With Smiles: 1905“:
Detroit, Michigan, circa 1905. “Temple Theatre, interior.” A vaudeville house with that lived-in look. Detroit Publishing glass negative.
