Erlanger Theatre

Among my grandmother's mementos, I found a small, red velvet pouch. Inside were this lovely brass ticket and paper ticket stub from the Erlanger Theatre's inaugural performance in 1927. I've often imagined what that evening was like for her. (Her evening out inspired a piece of artwork earlier this year, viewable here.)

The Erlanger Theatre was erected in 1927 and sadly, demolished in 2007. For photos and a history of this theater, visit:

How interesting! My father would have been one year old when she went to the theater.

What a lovely find!
