Damn, it’s too bad this is gone.

One of my favorite musicals, “Snobs” with book by George Bronson Howard, and songs and instrumental (music and lyrics) by the show’s star, comedian Shep Camp, played in this theatre in March 1913.

I would have loved to have visited this place and walked around in the same place where the musical was held. Are there any surviving photos of it?

Here’s the newspaper ad for “Snobs” at the theatre:

And… the sheet music to the most excellent “Milkman’s Rag” by Mr. Camp:

The Caucus Room is part of a modern mall type building that takes up the entire 400 block of this street.
I’ll post a photo shortly.
