William Street near Emslie

William Street c. 1910 near the Emslie (between Jefferson and Fillmore). Note the 1909 Savoy Theater at right.

The same intersection in 2003. The Savoy Theater became the Roxie and then the Roxy.* The building, still extant, is currently vacant.

* These details from Ranjit Sanhu's, "Buffalo Theatres Prior to 1930" manuscript at the Buffalo & Erie County Public Library.
