On 9th

Percy Loomis Sperr - October 4, 1933 (NYPL Digital Collections)

It's fall on 9th Street.  To the right of the house in the photo, there are ads for the RKO Prospect. So what's playing? What Price Innocence? (later classed as an exploitation and "sex hygiene" film,) and a stage appearance by "sensational, gorgeous" fan dancer Peggy Heavens "in the dance that shocked battle-scarred Chicago!"

Here's 163 9th today.
