Tally’s Electric Theatre – old photograph found
LOS ANGELES, CA — I was browsing through a 1926 copy of ‘The Film Daily’ when I came across a photograph labeled T.L.Tallys first show shop, Los Angeles. It was obviously a very old photo, although not dated in the magazine – and was curious, so looked up Tally’s on Google and found this website.
I’ve done a general search for images for Tally’s on Google but not found this particular photo. There is an awning over the door advertising “The Great Corbett Fight”. As far as I can find this was filmed in 1894 so it’s obviously a very early photo of the first American movie house. I’ve put it on my Flickr photostream here as I’m sure you will find it of interest.
