Roger- I compared your photo to an old one in which The Cameo appears. If you go by the facade, they appear to be the same. I was always told that the gap between the buildings was where The Cameo had stood. Growing up on Valley & First Streets, The Famous was on one side – The Village Pantry on the other. Do you know what was in that location?
The Cameo was destroyed by fire in the early 1950s. The building was torn down.
I grew up nearby in South Orange. I took in many a Saturday Matinee throughout the 1960s.
“Casa Italiana” was co-owned by Seton Hall and The Knights Of Columbus. My Italian class from Columbia H.S. ate lunch there once.
I’m happy to see the wonderful renovation The Newark Tabernacle has done to the building.
