Fantastic info and photos, Joe. Each photo has a new look for this cute theatre, and they all work.
I also really like that 1911 shot of Bartlesville High, wonderful architecture.
World headquarters for Phillips 66 Oil is located in Bartlesvilee and all that black gold cash fuels the economy for this region of Oklahoma.
