Parkway Theatre – Baltimore – A few pics to Share

PC40_ParkwayTheatre_Front

With the Centre Theatre getting new life, there’s alot of talk about the fate of the Parkway Theatre, just across the street and a block to the West.  I thought I had a few old “Proofs” for the Parkway and Mayfair as well, but I haven’t been able to locate them (yet). Did find a few old pictures however. The still ( above ) was damaged over the years, with the top part of the building rotted away ( on the picture that is ) . I did manage to scan it and saved the entranceway and most of the marquee.  This photo is circa 1942.
