Thelma & Louise

Shorpy

Thelma Torpedo and Louise Loader, former disciples of Carrie Nation, are heading to a meeting of the Anti Saloon League.

They are bringing their prototype bazooka to demonstrate that hatchets are passe and a little more firepower is needed to get their message across.

Bleecker Street

Went by there today. The building housing the waiting room is still there, but everything across the street has been replaced, except for the light colored low building right over the trolley. The Catholic Bookstore moved around the corner to Genesee Street several years ago.

Utica Catholic Bookstore

Utica Catholic Bookstore is still in business.

"Family owned and operated by the Trossets since 1908, Trosset Church Supply and the Utica Catholic Book Store are proud to offer a complete selection of church supplies, furnishings and much more to the New York state area."

I grew up in Utica and there isn't anything else in this scene that I recognize.

The Building Containing Stephenson's Printing

at 212 Bleecker Street (extreme left) still stands, but very few of the others do.

Strange sign

Near the left side of the photo: "Mohawk Valley Waiting Room." Okay, waiting for what?

Theater Giant

Sam S. Shubert, one of the three founding brothers died in a tragic railroad accident in 1905, and the other two brothers Lee and J.J. named some of the theaters after Sam. On the eve of the Great Depression they owned, operated, managed or booked 1000 theaters across the country. The company they founded owns 18 theaters in NYC alone today.
