Given its 1910 opening, it seems likely that the New Strand is the opera house mentioned in various 1910 issues of The American Contractor. The item in the May 28 issue says:

“Opera House: 43x102. $12,000. West Liberty, Ia. Architects Dieman & Fiske, Cedar Rapids. Owner West Liberty Opera House Co., George Ganse, sec'y, West Liberty. Owner is taking bids. Brick, composition roof, oak finish, maple floors, gas & electric fixtures, lavatories, water closets.”
Architects Charles Dieman and Ferdinand Fiske maintained offices in both Cedar Rapids, Iowa, and Lincoln, Nebraska, and their firm was among the busiest in the region during their late 19th and early 20th century partnership.
