Variety Theater: Pictures Needed

Passing this information along. Do you know anyone who might have pictures from before 1950?

I am writing on behalf of the Friends of the Historic Variety Theatre. We are in the process of restoring the theatre and are in need of obtaining photographic documentation on the theatre between 1927 and 1950. We are offering $20 to anyone who submits a photo. One of our board members suggested contacting CSU to see if any of the professors had students who would be interested in possibly making some money for doing research. The address of the theatre is 11815 Lorain Avenue, Cleveland, Ohio 44111. It is a City of Cleveland Landmark and is listed on the National Register of Historic Places.

Please feel free to pass this info on to anyone you think may be interested.
I'm including the attached flyer with more information.
Please feel free to contact me with any questions.
