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.
