The Theatre Organ Database says that Macon’s Rialto had a tiny Robert Morton pipe organ (II/3) installed in 1921. CT lists an opening date of 1925. Any supporting documents for either date?

The big tyre in the front was being used as a promotional tool for the Maurice Chevalier film “The Love Parade”. It was at the time claimed to be the largest tyre in the world!

The Rialto Theatre was at the other end of this block of Cotton Avenue, demolished yes, however now a parking lot, but you can tell where it was located by the drop off from the street level. My understanding is there was also a movie theatre in about the same spot as this photo in what is now Bibb Music, the second floor still has a ticket window.
