Paramount Theatre in Oakland, today I'm looking in to the upstairs foyer and toilets. This photo (above) shows the entrance to the ante-room leading to the Ladies toilet.
Both the Mens and the Ladies have these wonderfully decorated entrances. A pair of peacocks worshipping, seemingly, a sunburst at the apex of the opening. On either side, a male and female figure dressed in period finery.
Beyond the ante-room, the ladies are provided with a powder room.
