The Popular Nickelodeon was PLOK as read but I wonder if you might read the subtitle.
Despite Efforts of Business Men to End Existence of the Five-Cent Theater, It Still Lives and- Prospers Because of Popularity.

It was in written in 1908 at the height of the Nickelodeon and the industry was dead by 1915 according to Wikipedia.

It's an interesting piece. Thanks Andrea :thumbs:

Hard Knocks Make the Man was another interesting piece Andrea. I have the same question about the subtitle. PLOK otherwise :thumbs:

Buster Keaton: born Pickway, Kansas 1895 which was blown off the map after he was born. Started with the Keaton-Houdini show.

Here's an interview from 1960

Thanks!
