Theatre Row, Broad Street, Richmond, Virginia

Theatre Row

From back of postcard:
“The Bijou Family Theatre and Lubin’s offer an attractive and novel electrical illumination display, and the popularity of their amusement features is attested by the crowds that throng their doors whenever they are opened to the public.”

The Lubin was part of a chain operated by film pioneer Siegmund Lubin, often cited as “the first movie mogul.”

From back of linen postcard:

“The metropolitan atmosphere prevailing here is reminiscent of New York–Skyscrapers, a business bustle, and volume of traffic.”
