July 31, 2010 | 4:18 pm
| ||A nice postcard of the Mason Opera House (now the site of a huge, vacant pit on Broadway between 1st and 2nd streets) has been listed on EBay. The Mason Opera House/Operahouse was one of the leading theaters in Los Angeles and featured many top performers of the early 20th century, including Ruth St. Denis, Julian Eltinge and Geraldine Farrar. |
The Mason was demolished in the 1950s to make way for a Cold War Moderne state building and Concrete Nouveau parking structure that were finally torn down after being damaged in the Northridge quake.
Bidding starts at $6.
