    This is gorgeous. Where is it? I love all the cutouts and it’s so fantastically early Deco.

    It’s not kitsch but I’m awarding it a COA anyway because it’s vintage and fantastic and helps make our visual landscape more wonderful and beautiful, as does much kitsch.

    there are 2 short ones and 2 like the pic I sent, in front of the Civic Center where TCP played. This play has really changed something in me -see my FB profile page.
    I was at the ticket booth and they upgraded me from nosebleed to 13th row center.Serendipity or divine intervention?
