This is the caption to a photo in the Oil City Derrick on 10/10/74:

Ray L. Way and son, Richard L. Way, peer at a remnant of the old Lyric Theater which once occupied the site where a clothing store is now located. The elaborate design which Ray is touching borders the old stage which now serves as a storage and tailoring area in back of the sales section. The store moved into the former Lyric Theater building in 1955. Prior to the Lyric, this site was occupied by the Cameo Theater, before that the Princess Theater and before that the Orpheum Theater. Actually, the Lyric started housing audiences in 1917 at 106-108 Seneca St., moving to 216 Seneca St. in 1927.
