    That's the Palace Theatre on Lake Street.
    The movie 'My american wife' with Gloria Swanson was released in 1922.
  • State Library of Queensland PRO 3y

    Producer Gemma Deavin Thanks for that information. We'll need to amend the date on this image and also can now place it more accurately on the map. Thanks!

    Certainly is the Palace Theatre, although the date is October 1937. I looked twice at this photo because it just didn't feel 1915 or 1922.
