ax2usn commented about Fox Theatre on Dec 21, 2004 at 1:13 pm

My Dad and Grandpa did the stage lighting for the San Bernardino theaters, including the Fox. I do have old publicity photos of Dad’s, including some of the Franchon ‘girls’ at the theater as well as the grand opening of Lazar Cadillac in San Bernardino.

If you are familiar with San Bernardino history, you may recall the family names: Chester and Irvan ‘Stumpy’ Stumph (who was also a musician with swing era bands). Their business, Chester Stumph and Son Stage Lighting and Searchlights, operated for 75 years in southern California.

If you are interested in copies of the pictures, you may write to
