I’m going to go back next week. They are getting closer to the auditorium with the bulldozer, so I should be able to get a couple more photos.

I worked at Fanning Cadillac-Buick-Sterling at 5201 N. Broadway, directly across the street from this when it was Piser-Weinstein’s chapel. During the 1980’s. I ofetn saw services let out, but never though to photos of the auditorium. I’m going to see if the demolition crew will let me get a few. Our building had been built as a Cadillac Motor Car Division factory store in 1926. Which became Bill Elsey Cadillac on 05/27/71, when GM sold all the factory stores. It then became Fanning Cadillac in 1974. We took on Buick in 1981 when Warren Buick (formerly Broadway Buick) closed at Hollywood & Broadway. Then got a Sterling franchise in 1987. It then sold to Sun Auto Group in 1990, and closed in 1992. This stretch of Broadway was known as the North side’s Motor Row.
