janw commented about Boston Opera House on Nov 9, 2004 at 4:47 am

yes my grandfather lived and worked in Boston in the early 1900’s/ He was born in 1898 or 99 we are not sure. He was born in Napoli Italy . He also perfomed in Boston during the vaudville era. I have 2 photographs from then and was wondering where i could go to find out if they were actually taken on the b.f.keith memorial stage(now the Opera House)or somewhere else in old Boston(Scolly Square Theatre).The sign he is infront of on stage reads: RED HOT ALL HOT.THERE ARE 2 MEN ONDSTAGE MY GRANDFATHER AND ANOTHE MAN IN bLACK FACE. No one in our family is alive to tell us the history of the photo. thank you Jan Walsh
