Marc Jones’s “Daylight” at the Empress


circa 1910, A postcard view of the Huntington, Indiana Theatre, and Elks Club. There is a barber shop pole in the middle of the picture and a drug store at the far left. The delivery wagon is parked at the curb or perhaps it is a taxi?

This press clipping comes from the Huntington, Indiana Herald Newspaper on November 11, 1914. It is rather ironic that the newspaper has the same name as the Huntington Motion Picture, Co. that released the silent. It is possible is that both were owned by the same company — it was legal at that time — but I could find little to support that notion.

Huntington is now a suburb of Fort Wayne Indiana, that we profiled over a year ago.
