Construction of the Venetian Theater


Construction of the Venetian Theater


Black and white image of a power pole being installed during the construction of the Venetian Theater. A power pole leans against the side of the building. Two men stand on the roof near one end of the pole, apparently making certain the wires are connected, while another waits at the bottom of the power pole. The Venetian was the rebuilt Liberty Theater, which closed in 1925 after a fire.
