“Moving Pictures of Monroe, La.”

I found this article in The Shreveport Times, August 18, 1913 and it made me ill! I want to see this SO BAD!

The Palace Theatre (note: Not the Monroe Palace Theater) has the following announcement: Moving pictures of Monroe, La.; the Salt Water Natatorium and street scenes of Monroe and the Saenger enterprises of that city, also showing close-up view of the mayor of Monroe (this would be Mayor Forsythe), who has the distinction of holding office longer than any other mayor in the United States…All of the above pictures are guaranteed first run at the Palace and the admission is only 5 cents.
