During World War 2 the Palace played the war news over its PA system.

I thought maybe this was my mother standing alone at the left. She worked at Friedmans Deli/candy shop that was supposedly attached to the Palace. The movie on the marque was made before she moved to Youngstown but she had so many memories of all the great shows. She and other girls that worked for Friedmans would sneak in to see the shows because there was a side door that linked the buildings (I think). Is anyone familiar where Friedmans would have been located in reference to the Palace?
I found a posting on facebook which was a copy of a directory and it listed the address of the Palace Theatre, then the Eastman Kodak store shown in this picture, then the next would have been Friedmans Deli and Candy Shop (9 Wick Ave). This confirms the location of where my mom worked in the 1940’s. Friendmans was later known as Rodney Ann’s.
