Historic Theatres of Balaban and Katz: Granada Theatre

From ground floor, looking east into main lobby space. When compared against Bruce Sharp’s photo, taken just two years before, the rate of damage is striking. Many decorative elements had been stripped and some of the columns were heavily damaged. Image courtesy Historic American Buildings Survey ILL,16-CHIG,109-10.
