222. Theme 262 ~Road/Street~

For those who may not know, Theda Bara was one of the most famous silent film stars of the early 1900’s. You can find out more about her HERE.

Before Hollywood, there was Fort Lee!  Fort Lee, New Jersey with it’s famous Palisades Cliffs, and not Hollywood, is the birthplace of the motion picture industry in America.  You can read more about that HERE.

  1. I didnt know that. Interesting! And a very nice shot! Black and white suites it well.

  2. What a swell shot, the perspective is perfect as is the b/w. I love the sprocket holes on the sign. (the possibly related posts is again odd)

  3. I love the perspective and the black and white. Stunning!!

  4. Hurricane Felicia has put a crimp in our Lanai sightseeing plans, so I’m try to catch up on my comments. I’ve looked through all your postings, and as usual, you’ve done a great job! Theda is one of my favorite “originals” – so dramatic!

  5. The black and white is perfect for this “oldies” film star street name.

  6. What a cool black and white image and love the history behind the picture!! I learned something! 🙂
