Abstract
Broadway at West 39th Street. This is an overhead photograph of a roof-top entertainment taken from the back of a full audience. There are arched lighting fixtures and performers on the stage. The tower and "hut" which seem to form the back wall of the stage area are architectural features of the building itself rather than set design. Alice Atherton (1854-1899) was a popular stage actress.
