A Photo a Day: My Daily Sustenance, Day 166




The Wysor Building was filled with offices.

 "Built in 1904 by architect Cuno Kibele, the Wysor Building was razed in 1986 after a fire damaged the structure. The archive has drawings, photographs and building specifications in its Kibele and Garrard Architectural Records Collection."  So you can see those drawings, photographs, etc. here.

Wysor's name was also used as the name of a movie theater known as the 
Wysor Grand Theater. My younger brother and I watched lots of westerns at Saturday matinees here.

Ah. Childhood memories of cinemas. Wonderful - most of the time.
