I hope you'll love this post as much as I do. This is another photo from the "abandoned office building adjoining the abandoned Lyric Theatre." This photo made me smile when I took it. What made it more fun was the response my friend Bob Crowe, ( St. Louis Daily Photo), had when I sent him some of the photos. Bob, may I quote you???
" What are those things and how do they stand independently? My immediate strong association was to a poor-side -of -town version of Mickey Mouse's buckets and mops in the Sorcerer's Apprentice section of Disney's Fantasia. Whatever those things are - old chair backs? - they are dancing. "
Well, my friend and tour guide of the Alabama and Lyric, Tom Cronier, had something to add:
Fetch your master
Gushing from the buckets
See when I look at that room I see old Alabama Theatre seats that were stored here when the Alabama got new ones. BUT you and Bob see something magical."
What can I add, but that these are the side panels from old seats from the Alabama Theatre across the street that are piled in this room. You will have to admit they seem to be dancing to the window to get one last glimpse.
