Monday Morning Cofee: LeRoy, Illinois

Returning once again to LeRoy, illinois.  It is a city with a population of about 3,500 in McLean County.   The city is over 175 years old, as the date stated on the W. Cox block suggests.

As a walkabout photographer, am always interested in "making my feet glad".

The Princess Theatre was built in 1916 as a brick building with limestone accents.  The first movie was shown on November 21, 1916.  Originally it was a silent movie house with piano accompaniment.  "Talkies" did not debut in LeRoy until 1931.

Finally a very interesting retail store, as this is not your usual run of the mill active business.
