Beside the tall decaying apartment type building is the backside of the Capitol Music Hall in Wheeling, West Virginia. It first opened back in 1928 on Thanksgiving day as the Capitol Theater. The old-style theater featured a 2,450 seat auditorium. The Music Hall was home to a popular radio program in the early forties, It's Wheeling Steel, featuring musical performances by workers at a local steel plant. The Capitol Music Hall also featured country artists such as Johnny Cash, June Carter-Cash, Merle Haggard, Tammy Wynette, and the Joneses.
The theatre operated until 2007 but was closed due to code violations. It has been sold in the past couple of weeks with plans to renovate and restore the historical building.

(I duplicated the original color photo and changed it to sepia. Then I used my erase brush to take away the sepia on the sign.)
