.
.
Many of STL's now iconic theaters, including the Fox Theatre and the St. Louis Theatre (now Powell Hall), were built just before the Great Depression as first-run movie palaces. My grandfather, a World War II veteran, recalled hearing about the U.S. declaration of war upon Japan as he and my grandmother emerged from seeing a film at the Fox. The bright burning neon of this dense cluster of movie palaces, vaudevilles, and traditional theaters earned this stretch of Grand Avenue the nickname, “Great White Way”. I have been here several times, and on this trip I decided to try a few black and white shots. The colors in this place are so striking, so stunning that it would be hard to beat. The black and whites turned out pretty impressive as well.
