The address 132 N. Main Street is obsolete. In 1957 Oshkosh renumbered the lots on Main Street. The old 100 block became the modern 400 block.

This historical photo shows that the Lyric Theatre was almost at the corner of Washington Street. The Lyric and its neighbors were demolished long ago when the site was cleared for the First National Bank building, which appears to have been erected in the 1920s. The modern address of the Lyric’s lot would probably be either 402 or 404 N. Main Street.

This postcard which was postmarked 1913 partially shows the Lyric Theatre.
