The postcard for today is a great view of the Murray Theater, or Theatre, in Richmond Indiana. It appears that the theater is upstairs as the street level has a barber shop on the right corner and an unknown shop on the left. There is a barber pole on the corner of the building and a horizontal sign painted on the window like a barber pole which says "The SANITARY Shop". Between the two shops is the theater entrance and you can see a standing billboard there with advertisements for the shows and Vaudeville performers. Directly above the entrance is a sign which reads "Murray" at the top and "Vaudeville" vertically and the top of the building has "Murray Theatre" incorporated in it. This is a circa 1908-12 post card and can be found in my Indiana listings on my website at Moody's Postcards.
