Patsy,
I don’t think the Erie County Library has a copy of John Basil’s book,but in the Special Collections Department of the Buffalo & Erie County Public Library there is a manuscript by Ranjit Sandhu,who is an authority on Buffalo theatres. It is said to document every known theatre built before 1939 in the city of Buffalo. It cannot be used outside of the department.

John Basil,who is the author of “True Theatre History During the 20th Century”, has a phone number posted above(716-834-0348). In his book there are a number of pictures of the Lafayette.

Patsy,
The only 2 libraries I know of, in which the book “True Theatre History During the 20th Century” is available,are the Niagara Falls and North Tonawanda Public Libraries.
