Day 335

Day 335 - The Elsinore

In 1926, "The showplace of the Willamette Valley" opened it's doors. The tudor gothic architecture quickly became recognized as the finest theater between Portland and San Francisco.

Over the years time and vandalism took its toll on the grand theater, but in the end, a dedicated group of people saved the theater from being torn down and turned into a parking lot.

I'd been watching the schedule so that I could catch a night when the theater was operating and the lights were on.


  1. Oooohh, fancy! BTW, you're a day off in your title :)

  2. What a beautiful old building. I think it is wonderful that they restored it and saved this beautiful piece of history.

  3. You are very dedicated! Great job on this image. Love the star lights and the beautiful old building.
