Automobiles, streetcars and pedestrians are busy at the intersection of 8th and Broadway. A stop sign hangs from overhead cables. A horse-drawn wagon is loaded with boxes in front of the Garrick Theatre. "Mighty Like a Rose" is the billing. Originally called the Hyman Theatre, it was built by Los Angeles theatrical promoter, Arthr S. Hyman, sometime after 1910. In 1921 it was remodeled to a design by architect George Edwin Bergstrom. The building was replaced by the Tower Theater in 1927.
