Theatrical posters
DescriptionThe Majestic Theater was built in 1906 by Henry Sandmeyer Sr. as a performance theater. There appears to be a marquee above the entrance. The sign near the entrance reads: "Just Married, The Last Word in Laughs, New York Cast Intact, Mar 29." Three cars are parked outside building. Next door is a tailor's office, David Serkowich, and the Collections Agency office of HG Trauvetter. It is dated 1924 because that was the year the Peoria Collections Agency moved to the Jefferson Building room 305, which is suggested by the sign on the lower right side. This image can be found in Ray Brian's Pictorial History of Peoria Amusements, Book One.
