I've know this picture forever but only last night was I told that it holds a fascinating image for theatre lovers.

The large building on the bottom of the photo, between the words 'image' and 'yours' is the famed Zeigfeld Theatre!

Sorry, I thought I had put the date in one of the above posts.

29th September 1932.

By the time this picture was taken the Zeigfeld had already stopped being a live theatre. It had become the Lowes Zeigfeld, a major cinema on the New York circuit.

they did not have good health and safety then, the bloke on the far right is drinking vodka, the chap on the far left is snorting cocaine.
