The February, 1906, issue of Engineering World ran this announcement about the proposed Lyric Theatre in Mobile:

“Mobile, Ala.—The Lyric Theater Co., of this city, has incorporated to build a $100,000 opera house. Stone Brothers, Cora Bldg., New Orleans, La., are Architects.”
From 1901 to 1910, the Stone Brothers architectural firm consisted of Guy Stone, Grover C. Stone, and Sam Stone, Jr.

The Sanger Amusements web site offers this page with a brief history of the Lyric, and several illustrations.

This theatre is mentioned in a book about Nelle Harper Lee (To Kill A Mockingbird) by Charles Shields.
