The Gannon College Theatre was located at 128 West 7th Street in Erie, Pennsylvania. You can see the old Playhouse sign in front of the theater in this photograph. This shot was taken on West 7th Street looking west, between Peach and Sassafras Streets. The three-story building to the left of the theater was the Cathedral of Saint Paul Chapter House office at 134 West 7th Street. The two-story brick building on the far left was the Pennsylvania State Bureau of Employment Security at 144 West 7th St. These buildings were all demolished.

These buildings have all been demolished. Gannon College is now Gannon University. The Nash Library occupies the western end of this photo. The times they are a changing.'

Read 'em and weep at Old Time Erie
