"It's a mistake" I heard as I was taking this shot.
The lovely lady went on to explain that the lovely art deco former movie theater of which I was photographing was built by mistake. Apparently the financiers thought they were building a theater in Westchester, New York, not my West Chester, Pennsylvania.
Unfortunately the fate it would have surely met in Westchester it also met in West Chester, as it is now a putrid office for a local disreputable newspaper. All that is left of its beauty is the lovely facade, which unfortunately is just that.
