The 1914 Sanborn shows ‘Moving Pictures’ in the eastern storefront of the Humphreys & Hughes Block, a massive 3-story stone commercial block constructed in 1899. In 1907, this section (basically ¼, extending all the way to the rear) of the building was home to a glove factory. In 1914 it opened as the Lyric Theatre. It was closed on August 13, 1932. On October 15, 1934 it was renamed Ohio Theatre. The Ohio Theatre was still open in 1957.
At some point around perhaps 1960, a modernist storefront was applied to the ground floor of this section (while the remainder has received an excessively ugly siding job). It is currently home to an industrial supply company.
