This was my dad’s favorite place when he was a kid. He often told me about the time in 1942 when his sister had to almost drag him home from the U.S. – he’d spent the entire day there watching James Cagney in “Yankee Doodle Dandy”.

Old photo. Marquee states “Closed Visit the Fabian"
Marquee also doesn’t spell out "United States”. It merely has “U.S.”

Thanks so much for the photo of the U.S., TC. It was my dad’s favorite place and I’d heard so much about it over the years, but never saw what it looked like until today.
