Jewel Theater

Jewel Theater, originally uploaded by Jason B..
Oklahoma City, OK

I have taken quite a few shots of this one, but I couldn't pass up the great light on it this particular June afternoon. This is the last remaining building on this block which was formerly a popular African-American commercial district. This building was added to the National Register of Historic Places in 2009.

See Lynne's photo with more history here.
