New donation - FDL Theatre

Yesterday I received a new donation to the Fond du Lac Co. Historical Society Library, and when I took a good look, I was astonished at what I found.

The treasure of papers and theatre programs included the program for the Grand Opening of the Fond du Lac Theatre,  known back in 1925 as Fischer's Fond du Lac Theatre.

Inside this program, is a photo of the original building, just completed, and it is a photo that I have never seen before.

Here's a close-up of the photo on this page:

The entrance obviously was moved in later years, since it now appears in the middle of the block, but this shows what a wonderful building it truly was when built.
