TitleChicago Opera House
DescriptionCaption: "[Engraved for The Standard Guide Company.] Entrance to the Chicago Opera House. [See "Amusements."]". From text: "Located in the Chicago Opera House building, a magnificent structure, southwest corner of Clark and Washington streets, opposite the Court-house... The theatre was built for Mr. Henderson, and arranged with the idea in mind of the subsequent production upon a basis never before seen in this country of spectacular extravaganza. For five years Mr. Henderson has each season given to Chicago a production of musical burlesque, on a scale beside which everything else in that line ever attempted in America shrinks to pigmy proportions."
