Patsy:it would seem that as it was built for the Harris Amusement Co it was given the tentative title of Harris Theatre but was eventually named the Butler.The Wolfsonian does have a website but no access to photos.They have photos of most of his atmospherics.They are located in Miami but you would need to visit them in person to see any photos and make an appointment.I am hoping to pay them a visit next year.
