Cheyenne Saloon and Opera House - Postcard

The post card shows the Cheyenne Saloon and Opera House which still stands today in pretty much the same condition as it was when Church Street closed and the decor items were removed from the entertainment venues and  sold.

The photo shows visitors who did not always pay the price of admission, enjoying a warm  Florida evening outside on Church Street. In the hey days of Church Street Station, street performers made regular appearances: bag pipers, juggling comedians, Laurel and Hardy, and more. The sidewalks were always crowded with friends and families of local residents and visitors from around the world.

From the back of the post card:

Weaving together the spirit of history and adventure with fine entertainment to enjoy and experience Western Americana, that's the Cheyenne Saloon & Opera House. Nightly entertainment features the award winning Cheyenne Stampeded. Built of over 125,000 board feet of century old oak, it took more than 50 craftsmen 2 1/2 years to construct.
