Brooklyn Opera House

Brooklyn's Opera House was built in 1911.  It was the site of performances by well known entertainers of the day.  Besides the live performances of traveling groups, many local events such as class plays and talent shows were held at the facility.  Event goers could buy popcorn and peanuts from a vendor in a horse drawn wagon, often parked at the curb across the street.
