Lou, Can you tell me the source of the photo of the façade of the Girard? I am researching, J. B. McElfatrick & Son, the firm that designed the Girard, and would like to obtain a copy of the photo. Thanks!

PHILADELPHIA, Oct. 28. (1903) — The Girard Avenue Theater was gutted by fire early today, entailing a loss of $50,000, of which $25,000 was on the building and the remainder on the contents. The fire started at about 3:30 a. m. on the stage, and is supposed to have been caused by an electric light wire. A traveling company was producing the “Minister’s Daughter.” All of the company’s scenery and costumes were destroyed. Miller and Kauffman were the lessees.
