The building to the right of this picture is the old Capitol Theater. The office on the left side of the Capitol Theater was a barber shop. The lean-to on the side was added after the theater was torn down as a booth for the parking lot attendant to take parking fees. The Capitol later became part of the parking arrangement it became an inside parking garage.
