Linwood Theatre

The Linwood-LaSalle Theatre opened in 1920, with seating for 1,400. It was designed by architect George V. Pottle, who also redesigned Detroit’s East Side Theatre in 1925. The theatre, later known simply as the Linwood Theatre, stood on Linwood Street near North LaSalle Gardens. It closed in 1964, reopened briefly in 1971 for a revival of vaudeville, and has since been demolished.

I’m looking for a photo of the Linwood (Linwood-LaSalle) Theatre, preferably from it’s early days. I now own the Barton theatre organ that was originally installed there in 1929, and would like to have a photo of the theatre to display along with the organ.
