Color postcard with divided back and white border, postally unused. The Savannah Theater opened in 1818 on Chippewa Square. It was designed by William Jay and constructed by mason Amos Scudder. Due to a number of fires, it was remodeled several times. The image here is the 1906 remodel which resulted in a new brick facade, with cast terra cotta panels. Many of the windows were filled in. Another remodeling after a fire in 1948 resulted in the Art Deco style it has today. Caption from back: This theatre is the oldest active in use in the United States, opened December 4, 1818. Within these walls have played the greatest dramatic and operatic stars of the world. Now in continuous moving picture policy.
The Coastal News Company of Savannah distributed postcards from several different publishers including E. C. Kropp and Curt Teich. This card does not indicate the publisher.
